The map reference is the public car park behind the shops on the main road but you get to it by taking the B3052 local residential road that runs south of and parallel to the High Street which is the main A4 road. There is never a guarantee that car park charges will not apply on Sundays, so it’s best to take some coins for the parking meters, just in case. Last time we rode from here four years ago the weather was awful, but it was good two years prior to that and another two years prior to that as it happens. We could cycle up onto Barton Down and then head east towards the western end of the Ridgeway near Avebury. After this, we could follow the Ridgeway to Barbury Castle and then take a variety of loops to Ogbourne St George for the lunch stop at the Inn with the Well (www.theinnwiththewell.com) which welcomes riders and walkers. This is good riding country so we don’t have to stick to that route suggestion.
