A ride along the Welsh Way from Middle Duntisbourne to Fairford. The Welsh Way is an Iron Age trade route and trackway, and later a droving route, originally from South Wales to Oxfordshire. The section from Middle Duntisbourne to Fairford is along country lanes, not much changed since droving days (except for tarmacking). A272 to Winchester, then A34, A4, and the Ermin Way to Middle Duntisbourne. Then along the Welsh Way, through Perrott’s Brook, Barnsley, Ready Token, and Sunhill to Fairford. Return through Lechlade, Faringdon, and Wantage, following the route of the Welsh Way (or very close to it) to the Great Ridgeway. Then through Chieveley, Hermitage, Bucklebury, and Padworth for a quick visit to Calleva Of The Atrebates, then Basingstoke, Alton, Liss, and the A272 home.

The Harroway; Seaton To Yeovil: Wednesday 6th June 2018
A ride along the first (Westernmost) section of the Harroway, from Seaton to Yeovil. The Harroway (Hereweg) is an ancient road, which went from the Kent coast near Dover, to the mouth of the River Axe in Devon. It is one of the oldest roads in the country, dating back to Neolithic times. Most of this section is on metalled roads (mainly country lanes), with a few short sections which are unsurfaced roads (good), or bridleways or footpaths (not good). Unsurprisingly, it passes close to several Iron Age sites, such as the hillforts of Pilsden Pen, Lambert's Castle, and Coney's Castle. This is Durotriges territory. I'm thinking of either the White Lion in Broadwindsor or the The Fox Inn in Corscombe for lunch.

More details here.

Ride report here: The Harroway; Seaton To Yeovil, 6th June 2018.
Hampshire Downs And Dorset Drovers: Wednesday 27th June 2018
A ride to The Drovers Inn in Gussage All Saints. Going over the Hampshire Downs, along the Northern edge of the New Forest through Redlynch, and into Cranborne Chase and through Cranborne. Returning by a more Southerley route, across the New Forest on the Mockbeggar to Furzley road, and through Upham and Corhampton.

More details here.
The Harroway: Yeovil To Chicklade Bottom
A ride along the section of the Harroway from Yeovil to Chicklade Bottom. Most of this section is also on metalled roads (mainly country lanes), but there are a few sections which are problematical, for various reasons. This time the route passes a deserted medieval village, the site of the Battle Of Camlann (maybe!), King Arthur's castle (maybe!) at Camalet, and the rallying place for King Alfred's Saxon army before the decisive battle against the Danes when the rivers ran red with blood down to the sea! Probably the Montague Inn in Shepton Montague for lunch.

More details here.
The Harroway: Chicklade Bottom To Sefton Warren
A ride along the section of the Harroway from Chicklade Bottom to Sefton Warren. Most of this section is on byways and unmetalled roads. The route passes close to many Iron Age and Medieval sites, including Stapleford Castle, Stonehenge, Durrington Walls, and Quarley Hill hillfort. Probably The Boot Inn in Berwick St James for an early lunch.

More details here.
The Harroway: Sefton Warren To Powderham Castle
A ride along the section of the Harroway from Sefton Warren to Powderham Castle. Most of this section is on metalled roads, but with two substantial off road sections. The route passes some historic sites, including Weyhill medieval fair, the Iron Age hillfort of Bury Hill, Levcomagvs Roman road station, and the Norman castles of Lidelea, Powderham, and Bentley. Lunch at Wyke Down near Picket Piece.

More details here.
Roman Road To Ramsbury
A ride along the Roman road from Venta Of The Belgae To Cunetio, and on to The Bell At Ramsbury for lunch. Along the A272 to Winchester, then following the Roman road, as much as possible, around Chute Causeway and through Savernake Forest to near Mildenhall, then on to Ramsbury. Return through Hungerford and across Inkpen Hill to Burghclere and Kingsclere, then Micheldever, Alresford, Petersfield, and home.

More details here.
Scot's Poor To Boscombe Down By Ancient Track
A ride along the ancient track from Scot's Poor, through Ludgershall, and down to Boscombe Down. A272 to Petersfield, then Alresford, Micheldever Station, St Mary Bourne, and up the Bourne Valley to Scot's Poor on the Chute Causeway. Then following the old road, as much as possible, stopping at The Shears Inn near Collingbourne Ducis for lunch. Return from Boscombe Down through Cholderton, Palestine (!), Stockbridge, and onto the A272 to home.

More details here.
The Ridgeway: Streatley To East Ilsley Down
A ride along the Ridgeway from Streatley, on the Thames, to East Ilsley Down. The Ridgeway is an ancient road, which went from the mouth of the River Axe in Devon to The Wash in Norfolk. It is one of the oldest roads in the country, dating back at least 5,500 years! This short section is partly tarmacked, but mostly unsurfaced, and is public road or byway (legal to ride). The next nearly 18 miles West of East Ilsley Down isn't legal to ride, unfortunately. Probably The Swan in East Ilsley for lunch.

More details here.
Dragon Hill And Wayland’s Smithy
A ride to Uffington (lunch in The Fox & Hounds), and riding up Dragon Hill Road, past Dragon Hill, to Uffington Castle, followed by a visit to Wayland’s Smithy. Uffington Castle dates back to around 800 BC. Relatively modern then, compared to Waylands Smithy (which is a Neolithic long barrow), which is nearly 3,000 years older! Quite a bit older than Stonehenge then.

More details here.
The Ridgeway: Ridgeway Farm To The Sanctuary
A ride along the Ridgeway from Ridgeway Farm, 2½ miles South West of Wayland’s Smithy, to The Sanctuary on Overton Hill, near Avebury. Nearly 14 miles, mostly unsurfaced track (byway). The road continues South beyond The Sanctuary, towards Salisbury Plain, but that's for another time. Probably have lunch at the Three Trees Farm Shop Café, just outside Chiseldon, which is just before the end of the (4 miles) tarmacked section.

More details here.
The Ridgeway: The Sanctuary To Wilsford
A ride along the Ridgeway from The Sanctuary on Overton Hill, near Avebury, to the A342 near Wilsford. About 9 miles, mostly tarmacked, but with 2½ miles of unsurfaced track (byway). South of the A342 it is a continuous unsurfaced track for several miles across Salisbury Plain, which is the reason for breaking here. Lunch at The Seven Stars in Bottlesford.

More details here.
The Ridgeway: Wilsford To Gore Cross
A ride along the Ridgeway from the A342 near Wilsford, to Gore Cross, on the A360. Nearly 8 miles, all unsurfaced track (byway), across Salisbury Plain, along the boundary of the Army's Larkhill Artillery Range. Lunch at the Rose & Crown in Tilshead.

More details here.
The Ridgeway: Gore Cross To Upper Pertwood
A ride near the route of the Ridgeway, from Gore Cross to Upper Pertwood, on the A350 about ¾ mile North of the A303. About 24 miles; a mixture of tarmacked roads (mostly very remote minor roads) and unsurfaced tracks (unclassified roads and byways). The first ½ (roughly) is across Salisbury Plain, around the edge of the Army’s Imber Live Firing Range. Lunch at The Angel Inn in Upton Scudamore.

More details here.
Marshwood Vale
A ride through Marshwood Vale to the Bottle Inn in Marshwood, returning around Lambert's Castle and over Coney's Castle (Iron Age hill forts) and along Long Lane. Otherwise out and back along the A/M27, A31 and A35.

More details here.
Hallsands And Start Bay
A ride to and along Start Bay in Devon, visiting the few sad remains of the tragically lost village of Hallsands, then Beesands, Torcross, and Blackpool (no, not that one!). A272, A303, and A38 out; A35, A31, and M/A27 return.

More details here.
Lympstone
A ride to Lympstone on the Exe Estuary. A31, A35, and A3052 and through Budleigh Salterton on the way there; Exmouth seafront on the way back.

More details here.
Beer!
A ride to Beer in Devon. A31, A35, and A3052 and through Seaton.

More details here.
Beaminster
A ride to Bere Regis, and along little Dorset country lanes, through villages like Piddletrenthide and Cerne Abbas, to Beaminster. Returning by a slightly different route, through Evershot, Mappowder, and Milton Abbas to the Anderson red post. Then back the same way: A31 and M/A27.

More details here.
The emphasis is firmly on riding through attractive countryside and/or to picturesque destinations, mainly eschewing motorways, dual carriageways and major A roads.

If any of these rides appeal to you (probably unlikely!), you'd be welcome to join me.
