A two-day cycle ride for employees of Hogan Lovells. They will have the opportunity to cycle 255km over the 2 days, going via Oxford.

Overview:

The ride will start at their London office from where they will head to a café in the grounds of Hampton Court for their first stop. They’ll then continue on to lunch in Dorney followed by an afternoon stop in Turville Northend after cycling through the Chiltern Hills. The 124km day will then finish in Oxford.

Day 2 begins in Oxford where they will make their 33km journey to Charlbury for their first stop of the day. From there they will head through the Cotswolds to Blockley for lunch before a 29km ride to their afternoon stop. The day and ride will then finish at their office in Birmingham.

Once the cycle ride is completed and you have arrived at the finish, there will be access to showers and refreshments provided by Hogan Lovells.

Route:

This is a road cycle route with open roads so you will be sharing the road with other road users. The best kind of bike to use is a road bike. If you have a hybrid bike it will be fine but mountain bikes will be slow and heavy on a route that is all tarmacked roads.  If you are thinking of using an ebike get in touch with info@pieevents.co.uk for our ebike information.
