Coate Water Country Park

If you like routes straight out into the countryside with great veiws of Thames Valley after some hill climbing then this is the route for you.

The route begins in the beautiful grounds of Coate Water Country Park where you will set off south east through Badbury Wick and rural Badbury. From there you will cycle east on a steady ascent on the Ridgeway, through Ogbourne St George, where at the summit you will view over the scenic countryside and have a quick respite. Then the route takes you downhill to the quaint settlement of Bishopstone viewing the picturesque thatched cottages. You will loop back round on Hinton Hill then meander through Hinton Parva towards Wanborough then through Liddington where the topography is predominantly flat and steady with the main climbing over for the day.
