    Some of the best local single track with a few byway link ups and as little road a possible!

    Free parking at Thurle Down - 51.527N, 1.184W / OS SU56698125

    Starting at Thurle Down there is a nice leg warmer up Rectory Road Climb right from the off along the Ridgeway, get a low gear and spin away :) Shortly after there is the super fast Bee Hive Single Track down to Compton. Then a steady climb back out of Compton back up and along the Ridgeway to the A34 underpass. From there a fast grassy descent before taking on the fun Twisty Knarly!
    Next down to East Ilsley then after a short but extra steep climb out on to the Compton Byway, another great bit of singletrack, on to the edge of Hampstead Norreys. A short road section to get to Thorn Hill descent shortly followed by a little singletrack hidden in the woods and back in to Compton. The route now climbs back up to the Ridgeway for the final leg punishment before a flat out descent, with air time if you're brave enough, down the Rectory Road Climb and to the finish.
