WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THIS TRIP?

Well... what makes a perfect day of cycling? We think it's rolling hills, splendid
views, interesting landmarks, charming riverside cycling and nice weather. We guarantee 4 out of 5 on this ride!
Our ride begins in Richmond with a relaxing, peaceful pedal along the Thames Path  out to Windsor. After a well-deserved roadside lunch stop we'll continue into the Chiltern Hills along some of the prettiest sections of the Chiltern Cycleway. Ewelme is a gorgeous little village and we'll take a few minutes to ogle the fun-loving ducks swimming on the lake, and enjoy the plentiful pic 'n' mix selection in its village store.
After an overnight camp in the large village of Watlington, and a well-deserved meal in one its many pubs, we move seamlessly from the Chilterns to the rolling chalk downs of old 'Wessex'. The Uffington White Horse, dating back to the Bronze Age, is a wonderful feature and we aim to set up a picnic spot for lunch somewhere close by. The final few miles take us across rural Wiltshire and we plan to deliver you to WOMAD relaxed and refreshed by 4pm!
Now for the real icing on the cake, the first 8 riders to book will receive a free weekend pass to use La Di Da Loos (https://womad.co.uk/tickets/) courtesy of the lovely WOMAD team. And, every rider who books will be entered into a prize draw to win one of two pairs of WOMAD Spa tickets (worth £140!).
