oxford to cambridge

This year, the one day 100-mile route starts in Oxford, weaving in and out of villages and small towns, as we make our way to the half way point in Milton Keynes. The route has a lovely rural feel, it’s tarmac all the way, with very few hills so it’s ideal for riders of all abilities. There’s a distinct railway flavour to the journey too, as you crisscross the old ‘Varsity Line’. We’ll have a half way point in Milton Keynes, for those who may prefer to do a 50 mile route to Cambridge, where the riders will be greeted with a celebration!
