Route information
All routes start from Swanmore and head out towards Hampton Hill, Beacon Hill and Old Winchester Hill, where you can enjoy spectacular views across the beautiful rolling countryside.
The medium, long and epic routes then head up the renowned Butser Hill, lots of out-the-saddle climbing here but the sight of the sea and the panoramic views at the top make this totally worth it!
You then head over to Rowlands Castle with the medium route looping back via South Harting and the long and epic routes heading on towards Glorious Goodwood, returning via the South Downs National Park.

Well organised and well stock feed station. Thank you! The hills were hard work but at least they came in the first half.

Despite the weather a great ride & very well organised with clear signs all the way round. Timing chips would be the only thing I would suggest adding for the future.
