Our next Sportive is on Saturday 24 June 2023.
The Samaritans Cycle Sportive was established in 2017 and is now firmly established as one of the best value sportive events in the Chilterns, situated on London’s doorstep with all proceeds going to the Chiltern Samaritans.
Our Sportive has a choice of three different routes: 40, 80 & 130 kilometres. All three routes have excellent route management, including chip timing, a GPX file, signage and marshals on the day.
The Samaritans Cycle Sportive is a firm favourite of club riders, social riders and those looking to raise money for the local Samaritans.
All riders completing any of the three routes will receive a free glass of local ale and a burger at the finish, after enjoying wonderful feed stations and the glorious Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty en route.
Even better, if you raise £200 in sponsorship to support the great work we do, we’ll refund your registration fee.
We hope everyone realises just how important the event is to us. With your help and with some very generous donations from our sponsors, our Sportives have raised in excess of £65,000.
The routes will be extensively signposted and marked with the use of arrows and warning signs. Arrow signs will be at all junctions on the route and at regular intervals; look out for these as you approach junctions, especially at route splits. There will also be marshals at key locations on routes to provide extra confidence.
