Wessex Beast

April 03 2021
Goring, Berkshire

Tackle the Wessex Beast and take on three of the Top 100 climbs in the UK. Starting from Goring near the M4 & Reading, we head west over Streatley Hill with an average gradient of over 11% before heading south to Combe Gibbet. After glorious rolling terrain near Lambourn, we ride Dragon Hill Road and see the White Horse in Uffingdon. The last 30km is quick on empty backroads before a sting in the tail, the 1.2km Whitchurch Hill averaging 8% before a pint & chips to celebrate at the end.

Glorious quiet Witlshire lanes: Ride the quiet backroads in Wiltshire on rolling terrain. Cycling at it's best. 3 Top 100 Climbs: We hit our first of three big climbs early - Streatley Hill averages 11% before adding Combe Gibbet & Dragon Hill Road. Ride past the White Horse: Our third feed stop is close to the Uffingdon White Horse - a 3,000 year old hill figure.
