National Routes

Ridgeway Adventure

The Ridgeway is a National trail of some 87 miles and spans both the Wessex Downs and Chilterns from Avebury in Wiltshire to Ivinghoe Beacon in the North Chilterns.The western half from the start to Goring and streatley is the best for mountain biking it contains an almost unbroken 43 mile stretch of off road.It generally runs on the top of the downs and so is well drained and gives expansive views over the vale of white horse.Look at the website for details www.nationaltrail.co.uk/ridgeway/

SouthDowns

The SouthDowns Way adventure-the South Downs way is again a National Trail and spans over 100 miles from Winchester to Eastbourne. The entire length can be transverse by bike with wonderful views over the downs with the highlight of coastal views toward the end. It can be completed by the casual cyclist in 3 to 4 days whilst the fitter rider can be expected to do it in 2 or even a day for those really up for a challenge. It is best to do both the Ridgeway and SouthDowns way in May, June or September when the weather is drier avoiding the summer holidays when pressures on accommodation are greater.
