BDOVelo launches season with a Chilterns ride

Cycling-and-networking group BDOVelo is launching its season with a Chilterns ride, including a guest speaker over lunch: Phil Cavell, author of The Midlife Cyclist and founder of Cyclefit UK.


Rolling out of Harleyford Golf Club in Buckinghamshire, the ride heads into the Chilterns before returning to the club for lunch. Organised by BDOVelo, "the networking group for business executives who love to cycle", the ride is led by experienced ride captains and embraces novices as well as pros.

The first ride of the year takes in the historic market towns of Marlow and Henley-on-Thames before heading out, and up, into the Chilterns for quiet country lanes, a switchback climb, ancient bluebell woodlands, Norman churches and chocolate box villages. All accompanied by the majestic red kites the area is famous for.

Back at Harleyford Golf Club and its changing room facilities and showers, and then a two-course meal in the clubhouse restaurant - a chance to debrief on the ride and network with the group, and hear from guest speaker Phil Cavell, author of The Midlife Cyclist, founder of Cyclefit UK and contributor to Cyclist magazine, about his latest book: "Why do cyclists seek to suffer?".
