The outward scenery is varied and attractive Chilterns, Kennet Valley, the Hampshire Downs, the Test Valley with its string of lovely villages and the New Forest. The turning point is Fordingbridge The return is pretty benign with a fairly flat course and the prevailing wind behind you. The route crosses back over the New Forest, skirts Winchester to Alresford which has shops and cafes and then takes in the easy climb back over the Downs via the Candovers. Its back roads to Wokingham and on to Maidenhead where a very easy route, mainly lit, takes the southern edge of the Chilterns to the end. The route is fixed friendly with the climb of White Hill after Kingsclere (100m of 10% or thereabouts) the major climb of the day. The route may change slightly. All entrants will be given definitive versions of the routesheet and GPX near to the event. The event website has routesheets and GPXs in a range of formats
