RIDGEWAY CHALLENGE – THE COUNTDOWN IS UNDERWAY!

With four weeks to go until we set off on our challenge, we would be particularly pleased to see anybody who wants to walk – or, as the western half of the Ridgeway is a bridle path, ride – with us. We envisage the final day will be the closest for most, our planned itinerary is below, and it would be great to see anybody who wants to join in for part or all of the day.

Day 1 – Friday 27th September – Ivinghoe Beacon to Chinnor (22.5 miles)

Day 2 – Saturday 28th September - Chinnor to Streatley (22 miles)

Day 3 – Sunday 29th September – Streatley to Ashbury (22.5 miles)

Day 4 – Monday 30th September – Ashbury to Overton Hill (20 miles)

We will be starting our walk at 8.00am each morning. If you would like to join us during day 1 -3 please get in contact with us so we can keep you updated on timings and locations.

Our schedule for Day 4 is as follows:

Start – 8.00am at the junction of the Ridgeway & the B4000 close to Ashbury

Short rest - 10.00am at the crossroads on the B4192 immediately south of the M4
