- Hampshire road advice… Salisbury to Petersfield
I would take the Alresford road out of Winch, over the bridge and to the tech centre/Percy Hobbs (what was) roundabout. Onto A272 for a few miles until you see a junction on the right peeling off, its at the bottom of the first long hill down. Take that and head all the way to Warnford. At the watercress beds/A32 in Warnford, turn left along A32 until West Meon, and then take the East Meon road which will be on the right in the middle of the village. Take this through East Meon until you join A272 again in Langrish. Finish on 272 into Petersfield.Posted 4 years ago
Agreed Froxy/privvy/Arles are part of one of my many routes and whilst single lanes are very very quiet, hack through some most beautiful countryside but they are not a quick route if you need to get back to P’field, more a casual hack if you get my drift.
If you did do it though, you could do the above, turn down into East Meon and head towards Butser Hill then head back up to P’field.. Of stay North and head to Steep (named for a reason and stunning)
Probs with the 272 is its full of trucks and fast cars, it’s smooth, you can hack it, but being overtaken by 40 toners isn’t pleasant at the best of times.
Lanes most deffo the safest, though not quickest, route.

Personally, I’d stay north from Winchester, go under the M3/a34 roundabout on bike route then via lanes to Arlesford, Ropley, cut over to West Tisted then past Basing Park to Froxfield then nice sweeping descent down Stoner back into Petersfield. That’ll be my commuting route at some point in the next few months when I start my new role in Winchester.Posted 4 years agocobrakaiSubscriber
I love the A272 for driving so that in its self as a reason not to cycle it! I live just off Belmore lane to the south of the route above. I’m a nervous road cyclist as it is but the roads around here scare the jobby out of me.
After studying the route above I think its the best way if you’re on a road bike. The outstanding way would be take the MTB over the south downs way.Posted 4 years agosingletrackmindMember
