- Starting Point & Postcode
- Furzton Lake car park. Large car park by the bridge that crosses to MK Bowl off of Watling Street V4 Elfield Park MK5 8AA
- Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
- 3 hours 5 mins (2 hours 25 mins cycling)
- Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

Challenging rides on the road for adults only
If you’ve been riding a road bike for a while, and perhaps been thinking about joining a cycling club, these rides – brand new for 2012 – are for you. The prospect of a speedy pace over twenty to fifty miles, and the strong likelihood of some hills thrown in along the way, means our Ride Strong Plus rides are not for the faint-hearted.
A fantastic circular route. Though we start in town, within two miles we'll be wheeling through beautiful rolling countryside heading out into the gorgeous Aylesbury Vale. We'll also pass through the lovely villages of Winslow and Swanbourne before heading back to town on this 31 mile ride. Bring fresh legs as it's going to be a speedy ride!
If you've already tried one of our Ride Strong Plus rides and you're ready for the next challenge, why not try a British Cycling Sportive?
