2019 Route



Just a few things to finalise, but right now it looks like the route below is the one we will be following for 2019. A few changes from previous years, but still the great mix of quiet roads, classic Chilterns scenery and outstanding hospitality along the way.

Rest assured it will still begin at the Alford Arms near Berkhamsted and end at the Royal Oak in Marlow. In between we will be pulling in at the Old Swan in Swan Bottom, nr Great Missenden and the Old Queens Head, Penn.

If you’ve entered Pedal of Honour before then you might be thinking that we will be missing out the mighty Whiteleaf Hill. Well, you will be wrong because that is is still our keynote climb of the day. However, the route change does also allow us to add in an ascent of mysterious Chiltern classic, The Crong in the first section. Lucky you!

We’re also doing the same number of miles (100 km or 65 miles ish) with around 1000 metres of elevation.

This is the Main Route we will be signposting on the day. 

It doesn’t necessarily mean everyone has to follow the main route. We want everyone to enjoy their day and ride within their capability. If that sounds like you and you might need something a little shorter or a little less steep, then please get in touch and we’ll make some suggestions.
