This will be a useful early season ride that will enable riders to gauge their fitness level as they cycle around 90 miles through Wiltshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire with about 1400 metres of climbing. The route has been carefully selected to keep the riders interested and challenged by their surroundings, on decent road surfaces and with minimal traffic.

What can riders expect?

Start and finish at the Memorial hall in the village of Shrivenham, Oxfordshire.

Pass by four white horses: Uffington, Broadtown, Cherhill & Hackpen (Uffington White Horse is the oldest of all British chalk figures and dates back almost 3000 years).
