The Whitchurch Primary Pedal

Event info
Sun 10/05/2015, 08:00

The Primary Pedal is a bike ride of 20, 40 or 60 miles through the North Wessex Downs AONB on very quiet lanes. The 20-mile route isn't that hilly, the 40-mile route is quite hilly and the 60-mile route is as hilly as is possible without building some extra hills. The 40- and 60-mile routes pass through Hampshire, Berkshire and Wiltshire, going over the highest point in South-East England - Walbury Hill.

The Primary Pedal starts and finishes in the easily-accessed country town of Whitchurch, just south of Newbury

The vast majority of the routes are on single-lane country roads bordered by hedgerows and fields. There's only 1 mile of minor A-road on the 60-mile route, and that's downhill or flat.

The entry fee is just £15. 40% of the funds raised through entry fees and sponsorship will go to the registered charity FOWPS - Friends Of Whitchurch Primary School. 40% will go to Testbourne School Mityana fundraising committee, to help support the student trip to Uganda in 2016, and 20% will go to the Test Valley Cycling Club, to promote family-oriented cycling and to hold cycling events open to all ages and abilities for recreation, fitness and pleasure in the Test Valley, Hampshire.
