We will start at the Ivy Pub in Heddington which is handy as it means there will be a pub at the end of the ride. We will do a tough but tarmac climb up to the Roundway and then make our way to Devizes via some off road, on road and next to canal routes including the Caen Hill Lock Flight.
We will stop in Devizes for a coffee/tea. Its not quite half way and will be more of a social stop than a lunch break, so bring some snacks as we will stop a little further on to refuel before the final climbs.
After refreshing ourselves in Devizes there will be what will feel like endless uphills to eventually bring us to Furze Knoll and the infamous bomb hole. From here we will have a final bit of fun as we make our way to the finish and a pint.
Nothing technical but there will be plenty of opportunity to fall off if you are that way inclined.
We will stop for a moment’s silence along the way to remember fallen soldiers.
