Our next Sportive is on Saturday 25th June 2022

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.

The Samaritans Cycle Charity sportive consists of 3 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. The last 3 sportives with your help and some very generous donations and individual sponsorship, we raised in excess of £50,000.

Riders Briefing

The Routes

Wheelie Interesting

People ride bikes for many different reasons and rightly resist all stereotypes. From time to time the ‘wheelie interesting page’  will include an article on an individual cyclist. It may be about someone famous, someone participating in our forthcoming Sportive, a volunteer at our branch in Amersham, or perhaps even all three. After all, one of the main purposes of this annual event is to support the branch, which in turn is enabled to continue to serve all who need it: wheels within wheels, as it were.
