The Harp Hilly Hundred Reliability Trial is a popular early season training ride 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, it was originally 100 miles but is now approximately 100 kms with a shorter option of 55 kms for those who dont 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 Chesham, 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.

The entry fee for the Harp Hilly Hundred is £12 with at least 50% of the entry fees receed for the event donated to charity. Since 2008 we have donated over £10,000 to various charities including the Macular Society, Breast Cancer Care, Enfield Women's Centre, Heather Club, Reachout Plus, Sustrans, CRY, Linkage Community Centre, St Albans Mencap, Shelter, Vic Dashwood Memorial Fund,  RSPCA, MacMillian Nurses and Richard House.
