The outward scenery is varied and attractive the Chilterns to Pangbourne where you will get a cooked breakfast, the Kennet Valley, the Hampshire Downs, the Test Valley with its string of pretty villages and ponds to Stockbridge, where you will get hot drinks and cake from a coffee shop that is a favourite with local cyclists. Opposite you can feed the local trout. Then across the New Forest to Fordingbridge. There is a change this year so that you go through Fordingbridge and turn back a few kms beyond, going past Grade I Hale House. Sparsholt Info is where you can wonder at the bus shelter with a mosaic. Alresford is a small country town, terminus of the Watercress Line, with a range of eating options. One last control at Winnersh and a run back through Maidenhead to the end with long stretches lit. FOR MORE DETAILS AND FOR GPX AND ROUTE SHEET FOLLOW THE WEBSITE LINK BELOW.
