Lee’s Hilly Aldbourne Loop

Lee’s Hilly Aldbourne Loop

Lee Eagle leads this Sunday morning ride. Meet at Foxhill ready for a 9.00am start. 

The ride starts with a climb and a descent along the Ridgeway, before turning right and heading in the direction of Baydon. After a short section of road, there’s another climb, this one quite technical.

From there, it’s past Four Barrows and on to Aldbourne, before the very long climb back to the top of the hill, and onwards to Foxhill to finish.

The ride is 16 miles long with around 400m of climbing. At this time of year, there will be some slippery sections, especially the ruts and tree roots on the technical climb up towards Sugar Hill. Whilst most riders should be able to manage this ride, note that it is not advertised as novice-friendly due to the amount of climbing and the expected conditions on the ride.

The meeting point is at Foxhill, about 100m up the road from the Burj Restaurant.
