What better to do on a Sunday morning then get on the bike and find some breakfast! Aiming to go further afield, we plotted out a route that stopped off at Waitrose Farm Shop in Leckford.
It was quite a nice route, the roads were fairly clear and it had a generous amount of hill climbing to get the heart racing! It was nice to see other cyclists out and about as well. Most looking far more hardcore than me.
The route was a nice distance – 25 miles, broken up with breakfast half way. The Leckford cafe is yummy and certainly worth a visit if you haven’t been. The pancakes for breakfast went down a treat! You can cycle right up to the cafe, its a long, steady (uphill) drive to the venue but there is plenty of space to secure the bike when you arrive.
On the way back we headed through Fullerton, Cottonworth, Chilbolton, Wherwell. These are all lovely places and areas I’ve been running in the past. You’ll get views of the River Test and you can pick up the Test Way from Stockbridge.
