Our glorious routes start and finish at Stoke Mandeville Stadium and will take you out into beautiful countryside of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.  Each route includes water stops and is equipped with marshals, first aid and support vehicles for your safety. 

Entries will open on 1 April but continue to check our social media channels and our website www.tourdevale.com for updates.

We will be offering a selection of routes during the coming months for you to download in readiness for our ride. Whether it be for pre training or some new routes for you to experience, we hope you enjoy them. Huge thanks to our route planner Peter Robinson for allowing us to share these with you.

1. The first lovely route starts in Stoke Mandeville and takes you through Ellesborough, Great Missenden, Chesham, St Leonards, Halton & Weston Turville. Including a total ascent of 1,594 ft this 28 mile route is perfect to blow away those cobwebs! Why not stop at Café Nero in Chesham for a takeaway coffee before tackling the greatest elevation of 873ft at the 21 mile mark.
