Evans Cycles - Milton Keynes 100 Challenge Ride
Saturday, May 18th
The Milton Keynes 100 is one of 4 challenge events we’ll be hosting across the country in 2019 designed for riders who are looking to challenge themselves on a longer route distance than our regular RIDE IT events.
The event has a choice of fully waymarked routes, well stocked feed stations sponsored by High 5 Sports Nutrition, mechanical and sweeper van support if things go wrong, electronic chip timing to record your ride along with a unique event specific finishers medal, goody bag and post ride food waiting for you at the end.
RIDE IT has been a regular visitor to the roads around Milton Keynes and in 2019 we return to host our new Milton Keynes 100 offering new route options and the chance to bag either a 100 mile or 100km century ride.
Starting from the outskirts of Milton Keynes, we soon leave the modern buildings and roundabouts behind for a spring road-fest. The routes are on the flatter end of the RIDE IT spectrum, with lots of long straights for you to pick up a good pace. There are a few climbs to challenge you with the Medium and Long taking on Aldbury Hill whilst the Long also climbs up to Ringshall along with a sneaky little climb out of Lidlington. Once these are conquered it’s all plain sailing back to the finish and a well-deserved plate of food and medal.
As well the 100 mile and 100km route options there is also a shorter route option which is well suited to those looking to spend less time in the saddle but still get a taste for the riding this area has to offer.
Price: From £28 (Kids ride free)
