This is one of a number of routes published by Goring Gap Cycling.
A big climb through the Mongewell Woods is followed by a mix of farmland and woodland before another more gradual climb to Woodcote and a final descent back to the Thames Valley.
Views back to the Ridgeway and Berkshire Downs on the initial climb and forward on the final descent.
Bare chalk in the Mongewell Woods section can be very slippery after rain.
The Rising Sun pub at Witheridge Hill at the half-way point of the ride, a short (1/4 mile) there-and-back detour off the through route.
This ride is significantly more strenuous than the others categorised as Pub Rides – but it does go to a pub!
