This is one of a number of routes published by Goring Gap Cycling.
Extensive views from the Ridgeway on the return journey.
A small detour in Aldworth will take you to the church and the famous Aldworth Giants, medieval effigies of members of the De La Beche family.
Busy traffic on the A329
The long descent of the Ridgeway to Warren Farm and Rectory Road has a number of drainage run-off channels running diagonally across it. Take care here.
The Bell at Aldworth
This route is shown going out on tarmac “round the back” of the infamous Streatley Hill, with the return journey using bridleways and the Ridgeway. A hybrid or touring bike will be fine here if the conditions are dry. The B4009 Streatley Hill is another alternative for the return, but it is very steep (16%), quite busy and has poor sight lines.
