Badlands Gravelcross

Princes Risborough School Merton Rd, Princes Risborough

The Chiltern Hills are a near perfect mix of roads tracks and trails for CX/gravel riding, and the Badlands Gravelcross spins out it’s route to explore some of the darker, grittier folds of this deceptively demanding range of hills. The densely folded and wooded hills conceal a network of lanes, tracks and trails the wind and climb and fall continuously. It’s a surprisingly harsh corner of the home counties; where the crumbling tarmac on the back roads can prove perilous for skinny road bikes, but where CX or gravel bikes come into their own. It’s an MTB friendly ride too - 29ers and 27.5in hardtails will eat up the miles on the dirt, and the constantly switching surface provides an entertaining ride and acts as a great leveller between the variety of bikes on the route.
