My attempt at tracing in the 2008 route sheet is here. I don't think it's changed much since then.

Lemme know if you need a hand converting that to something more GPS friendly.
Try this (if you don't like Kansas):

Thread resurrection - I'm not sure if this is the same ride (pretty sure it is) - but it is running Sat 2nd July this year.

I've recently discovered this part of the countryside is much nicer to cycle around than the Chilterns. The roads are quieter, the scenery more open, and the surfaces in better condition.

There are some punchy climbs on the route - they may not be long, but they are steep.

If I bring the backup bike - I'll probably be walking the steep stuff.

Yes, that's the same event though there have been a few route tweaks over the years. It moved from September to June / July a few years ago when I was temporarily running the event and also acting as mentor for the Rural South organiser.

There are still several seats free for this event on Saturday, as well as for the companion 100km ride. The forecast looks good!
