Harp Hilly Hundred Reliability Trial
The Harp Hilly Hundred Reliability Trial is the first event in the Chiltern Classics series, organised by the Harp Road Club, it has been run every year since its inception in 1954. Recognised as one of the harder reliability trials in the area, because of the unrelenting terrain through the Chilterns. The full route is 100 kms with a shorter option of 55 kms for those who don’t feel they are fit enough for the full distance.
The ride starts in Kings Langley, Herts and follows a challenging route through the Chilterns via Bovingdon, Berkhampstead, Whipsnade, Ivinghoe & Tring. It then returns through Ivinghoe and Berkhampstead to finally finish back in Kings Langley. The major ascents include the climbs of Bison Hill near Whipsnade, Aston Hill just outside Tring and Ivinghoe Hill past Ivinghoe Beacon.
This event is a 'Reliability Ride', not a race, you are expected to complete the course at an average speed of between 12.5mph & 18mph.
The entry fee for the Harp Hilly Hundred is £10 with at least 50% of the entry fees received for the event donated to charity.
Entry is on the day only. The HQ is the Hemel Hempstead CC Club Room, Nash Mills Recreation Centre, Red Lion Lane, Kings Langley, HP3 9TE
