*** Update 29-Aug: change of cafe to the Gourmet Goat Farmer, a short ride up the road from Avebury. RWGPS route updated with new cafe location. ***
MTB or gravel bikes with tyres suitable for gravel riding are recommended for this ride.
We’ll ride out to Avebury for morning coffee at the Gourmet Goat Farmer Cafe before climbing up to the Ridgeway. This time we’ll head south to East Kennett and then take some uncharted woodland by-way up to the White Horse Trail which we follow to Knap Hill with fantastic views to the south across Pewsey Vale. The route then follows the Tan Hill Way up onto the Wansdyke which we follow for about 5 miles with stunning views to the north including Silbury Hill. After reaching Morgan’s Hill we pick up the Wessex Ridgeway to Cherhill Monument and then drop down to Cherhill and retrace the Calne to Chippenham cyclepath back home.
This route takes in the best views from the very top of Wiltshire. Please note there are no cafes or shops after Avebury so bring some food and drink to keep yourself going.
