Wilton Windmill http://www.wiltonwindmill.co.uk/

and some Byways and bits of the Ridgeway of course ;)



Combining these in a circular route starting and ending at Hungerford, takes around 5 hours (plus viewing stops/breaks) and covers approx 150 miles.

Although primarily a road ride, there are also several fairly easy Byways incorporated into the route.

Anyone else interested in tagging along ?

A 10.00am start at the Total filling station (which is the first one you see if coming into Hungerford from the M4)

N51 25.141 W1 30.542

1, Bath Rd, Hungerford, Berkshire RG17 0HD

Short drink/fag/photo stop at the sites/sights on the route with a Packed Lunch stop somewhere on Salisbury plain.

It will be the drop-off system so I'll be looking for a tail-end :)
Info on the drop-off system

Booked in - for what it's worth!

No doubt some environmental/family disaster will occur which means I have to be somewhere else, like most of last year.

Yes please Clive, Jill and I will be up for this too :thumb2


Val.
 
Would like to come too please.
Will be with a pillion so will take your advice on my suitability for the Byways. She can run though so i guess unless there are miles of slippery ruts she should be able to keep up.
