Meetup Details

The Chess Valley route is a point to point trail between Chesham and Rickmansworth.

At 10 miles in length and with Metropolitan Line stations at either end, this is the perfect location.

We will run the 'downhill' direction, starting further out and running back into London to Rickmansworth.

There are two trains an hour out to Chesham, so we recommend meeting in Kings Cross and catching the 0942 together.
