- Test Way Stockbridge area – conditions?
Unfortunately there where lots of tree’s down across the trail between Stockbridge and Chilbolton Common when I was last down there a week ago, don’t know it they have all been cleared away yet,also rather muddy due to the recent rain so it turn the day into an obstacle course.Posted 4 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
Looking at the way things are flowing around the upper reaches of the Test, CG, I’d imagine it’ll be jolly moist round that way by now!
If you can try and stick to the higher ground, you’d probably be OK, but the valley areas are likely to be wetter than an otter’s pocket.
Why not just can it for the day and sit in Stokes with a slice of cake and a coffee? 😉Posted 4 years ago
Terrific ride today. 😀 Joined the Test Way at Horsebridge and was pleasantly surprised that it really wasn’t too muddy between there and Stockbridge.
Lovely slow pootle along the High Street and now know where to find the cafe that the Cap’n recommended. Also, I discovered a memorial to Spike Milligan on the bridge that crosses the fast-flowing Test, Salisbury end that is.
Returned along the Houghton minor road, overtaken by a chain gang plus stragglers. Felt a tad chilly on the road where it was exposed, criss-crossed the Test again and saw flooded fields.
First time out for a month and I’m smiling again. 8)Posted 4 years ago
