King Alfred’s Way

350kms connecting offroad trails, bridleways and country lanes forms a loop that links together iconic monuments in central southern England, passing by Stonehenge, Avebury Stone Circle, Old Sarum, Farnham Castle and Winchester and Salisbury Cathedrals to mention just a few. The trail is ideal for wide tyre gravel bikes and mountain bikes. Although in parts the trail runs close to several big towns you feel as if you are exploring wide open landscapes across an ancient land. With white horses carved in to chalk hillsides and remote Iron Age hill forts it truly is a cycling adventure in to historic Britain.
