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.

Entry fee is £15 including homemade cakes at the refreshment stop (under 16s are free)
