An energetic cycle on quiet roads in the North Wessex Downs with some spectacular views, fast downhills and a pub at almost exactly half distance. The route starts in Newbury, passes through the highest village in Hampshire and is on paved roads, often narrow with some very steep sections. The surface is generally good - although there is some gravel on the tarmac in places.
