Half day ride (45-55km / 30-40 miles), with a tea stop, at a riding pace of 18-20km/h (11-13mph). Not likely to be very hilly. Might be a struggle for new or irregular riders in winter months.

This ride takes us out via the Letcombes and up to the Ridgeway via Hackpen Hill. We then descend towards Lambourn enjoying the stunning views of the valley of the racehorse, before we climb again to the Ridgeway above Kingston Lisle. From this point it is all down hill as we head home via Baulking and Goosey.
There are no cafes en route so please ensure that you have your own drink and Snack.
Report:
What a beautiful morning for a ride! Out through Letcombes towards Childrey , the wind was against us and getting stronger, with clouds looming on the horizon we decided to change the route to go through Childrey and stop for coffee, a great decision as whilst we were enjoying our cakes the heavens opened! we headed off towards Kingston Lisle and as we approached Sparsholt it poured, well we were wet anyway so continued to Westcott and along the springline to the Blowing stone crossroads, challenging but invigorating! The rain abated and the sun began to come out a splendid view of the Folly in bright sunshine to our left as Ed reminded me of the bridge which is liable to flooding as we descended from Kingston Lisle. So we road through water about a foot deep with great care! From this point the journey home was a breeze a ride with great company incredible positivity, and a real taste of the great English weather!
