Departing from the Kassam Stadium, home of Oxford United FC, the UKCE Ridgeway Rouleur offers the best of Oxfordshire’s stunning rolling countryside, passing through picturesque villages filled with quaint cottages and impressive manor houses.
Standard and Epic course riders head west straight away, making their way up the iconic landscape of the Wittenham Clumps, with stunning panoramic views of south Oxfordshire, before crossing the River Thames and winding out through small villages on quiet roads.
From Woolstone to Wantage, the Standard and Epic routes wind along and across the Ridgeway – Britain’s oldest road – which has been used by both ancient and modern traffic for more than 5,000 years. At the village of Uffington, riders are rewarded with a spectacular view of the mystical White Horse chalk remains.
