*NB* Not an entry level ride, as the route goes on some busy roads, and a reasonable level of fitness to tackle the hills is required, intended pace 12.5mph with hills factored in

Starting at Basingstoke Hockey Club car park Down Grange we will ride out to Oakley/ Malshanger, UP!! to Hannington, some light relief as we descent Meadham Lane; onward on the B3051 to the second challenge, Whitehill, a hill to tick off your to do list; we will regroup at the top to take in the great view of the downs. We will then drop down into Kingsclere and refuel at Honesty tea room; once we have rested it will be Whitehill in reverse then along the B3051 and onto the Harrow Way to Oakley then back along Pack lane to Down Grange. No one will be left behind.

Please ensure you bring spare inner tubes/pump appropriate for you bike: before leaving home check that your tyres are inflated to the correct pressure (it makes for a more comfortable/ efficient ride and can prevent punctures).

Wear clothing appropriate for the weather conditions, bring a water bottle: helmet is recommended.
Bring a bike lock and pennies for a beverage.
