RIDE Wessex Downs - Road

Roadies can choose from three distances: 34 miles, 70 miles and 100 miles, with the latter reaching as far south as Andover.

Punchy climbs around Farnborough, and Baydon, and the long steady ascent of Combe Gibbett and Walbury Hill (trust us, the views are worth it!) will have riders out of the saddle throughout the day.

RIDE Wessex Downs Dirty - Gravel

Looking for some off-road action? Ride Wessex Downs Dirty offers a taste of Britain's ancient and scenic gravel trails.

Two routes of 34 and 63-miles take in the historic ridgeway, where riders are treated to over 20 miles of continuous off-road riding along one of Britain's oldest trackways.

A mixture of surfaces from gravel lanes, grassy fields, and wooded forest tracks, with a 60/40 split between off-road and road sections, as well as fantastic views across the Oxfordshire and Berkshire countryside, all combine to make one amazing day on the bike!
