The White Horse Challenge is a useful early season ride that will enable riders to gauge their fitness level as they cycle 70 or 90 miles through some of the most scenic parts of Wiltshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

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).

Passing through Avebury which lies in the heart of the Wiltshire downs. The Avebury stones are thought to have been constructed in neolithic times (2700 BC to 2400 BC).
