Chiltern mud & gravel round trip – Wendover via Cadsden

Chiltern Hills invite for gravel riding

On Saturday Nick and I had a couple of hours to burn. We decided to go on a bit of an off-road trip around the Chilterns to a. avoid the wet roads and b. try out something different to our usual riding.

Nick plotted the route online and did not shy away from addidng some ridigulous hills in. Thanks for that! The route took us out of Wendover to the top of Coombe Hill which has the most beautiful view to offer! If you have not been up there, definitely worth a visit!

From there we wiggled our way towards Cadsden to stop at The plough pub which famously made the headlines when David Cameron brought the Chinese Prime Minister in for a pint a couple of years ago. Rumours have it that it’s since is rebuild 1:1 somewhere in China.

If you are looking for a kick-ass, arty-farty coffee you will be wrong here. Filter coffee it was! Absolutely fine with us but maybe not in everyone’s taste.

We cracked on via Whiteleaf Hill to go a bit back on-road towards the Buckmoorend Farm Stop. From here we rode up to Dunsmore and back to Wendover.

What a great day out!
