- Wayfarers Walk – allowed to cycle it?
dobo – you’ll be OK to just past Dummer where you cross over M3 and A30. Little bit of minor road that joins up very close to the railway.
Shortly after you’ve rejoined WW, at Cheesedown Farm you’ll need to take minor roads to rejoin WW at Great Deane Wood.
Are you returning the same way? If it was me, I would be following WW from Inkpen as it’s a fantastic route, very fast descents in places and better than climbing it!!
The worst bit will be Lower Woodcott Down descending to to go underneath the A34. Serious slippage for sure.Posted 5 years ago
No i didnt do the ride above but i will at some point when things dry up a bit.
I did do a 60k road ride though up to kingsclere and back, yea that white hill is toughy, especially when you do both sides 🙂
Thanks for the info though CG, inkpen is furthest away from me so starting near dummer would be equally good for me and then cycle back, the distance would be more doable as well.
a good alternative to the SDW i hopePosted 5 years ago
Dobo, did it on the singlespeed today and climbed from the back of Sydmonton stables up to the wayfarers. Big climb and my knees knew it. Almost saw breakfast again. The wind was soooo cold and like you say, in your face. My nose had frozen by Greenham Common on the way out mind you.Posted 5 years ago
dobo – you really need some dry weather and sunshine! I’ve climbed White Hill a few times but reckon it’s quite nerve-racking to descend.
A few years ago I made up a convoluted route starting from Kingsclere to Combe Gibbet. I did a fair bit of road to reach the Gibbet, mainly cos I just absolutely love the off-road section from Ashmansworth to the A34. No way did I want to climb that!
