My Favourite Ride Down South

Post by Gubble »

As you all know i pine for my beloved northern roads, the stunning scenery, the excellent roadside cafes and of course everybody's favourite Unmnarked Suburu Imprezza on the A65.

My current favourite route is:

Head out from Basingstoke on the A33 to Winchester - this is the dull bit - fairly striaght road for about 15 miles but gives you chance to get into your riding grove and make any last minute adjustments.

Winchester To Loomies - From Winchester take the A272 towards Petersfield - this road is simply stunning with some huge sweeping bends and nice scenery too. Beware of the camera van that sits sometimes in the 40 limit.

You then can stop at loomies to look at the other bikes and have a cuppa

From there take the A32 into Alton - another cracking road.

From Alton take the famous A339 to Basingstoke - easily one of the best roads in the area and has THINK BIKE signs everywhere (which gives you an idea that it's a bit of an accident hotspot).

Rowland & I did this route recently & i think he'll agree it's a great ride out. About 55 miles in total so about an hour's ride - perfect for that sunday morning wake up or post MotoGP blast.
