Our next Sportive is on Saturday 25th June 2022

On-line registrations are now closed, but you can show up and register on the day.  The weather forecast for Saturday has been improving during the week, and you can expect perfect cycling conditions - sunshine with light cloud and a refreshing southerly breeze to blow you up the hills.

Sun, Sea, and Sangria, or Bikes, Beautiful Chiltern Countryside, and Free Beer.  It's a tough choice.


The Samaritans Cycle Sportive was established in 2017 and is now firmly established as one of the best value sportive events in the Chilterns and is situated on London’s doorstep with all proceeds going to the Chiltern Samaritans.

All entrants completing any of the 3 routes will receive a free glass of local ale and a burger at the finish, and enjoy wonderful feed stations and glorious Chilterns area of outstanding natural beauty scenery during the ride.

Even better, if you raise £200 in sponsorship to support the great work we do, we'll refund your registration fee.

The Samaritans Cycle Charity sportive consists of three routes: 40, 80  & 130 kilometres.  All three routes have excellent route management, which includes chip timing,  gpx file, signage and marshals on the day.

The best value sportive in the Chilterns


The Samaritans Cycle Sportive is a firm favourite of club riders, social riders and those looking  to raise money for the local Samaritans.  Please note: this event is an Open Road sportive.

We hope everyone realises just how important the event is to us.  With your help and some very generous donations and individual sponsorship, the last 3 sportives have raised in excess of £50,000.
