Westerley Winter Warmer, Sun 10 Jan 2016, Chilterns

The 2016 Westerley Winter Warmer is on Sunday 10 January. It starts just outside the M25 at Chalfont St Peter and heads into the Chilterns.

This year there are three versions. The long version is 108km (1200m of climbing), there is a medium route of 60km and a shorter version of around 44km. The long route is a pretty challenging winter ride which tackles several of the bigger climbs on the Chiltern ridge, while the medium route has Hatches Lane as its main climb. The short version is a very pretty ride that misses out all the big hills and most of the (short) main road sections.

Entry is the same price as last year: £8/£4/£4 in advance via RiderHQ (, or £10/£5/£5 on the day.

There is a manned HQ (Chalfont St Peter Scout Hut), signed route and GPX tracks, computerised timing system and plenty of food before and after (including home made cake).

If you rode last year, you'll be pleased to hear that we have changed the route to avoid going up Cryers Lane, which is a bit of a long drag and has a fair amount of traffic, on the climb and the road before it. As a result, the ride is slightly shorter, and goes up Hatches Lane (which is much quieter and prettier and was used in the other direction in the original (pre-2013) route).

There's more info on the website (, or PM me or post here if you have any questions.
