Adventurer Cycle Route

This is one of four routes that start and finish at the Bouverie Hall car park in Pewsey.

Designed to meet different levels of experience and ability, these itineraries have been specially created by local cyclist Bob Greenwood to reveal the best of the local landscape.

This Adventurer Route has challenging hills (some exposed) and is very scenic with superb views of the downs, Wilton Windmill, the Kennet & Avon Canal heritage and with café stop opportunities.

Traffic expectations:  Generally light, but on some narrow roads. Expect some traffic on the first couple of miles out of Pewsey.
