Ride from Chalfont St Peter, NW of London, down to the New Forest and back. Sleepover at the start on Fri night is possible. The price includes food at four controls.
CANCELLED. Update on 21/3/18: about 75% of entrants refunded. Due to a need to transfer money into Paypal to cover everyone, payment will probably complete on the 24th.// A partial refund (all you have paid less about £2.00) will apply. I will be in touch with riders shortly. 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. Route is subject to minor change.
