St Raphael Storm Chippenham Whlrs 3 Up

The "sporting" course takes in the lovely Pewsey Vale ended by the climb up to Walkers Hill and onto the A4 at Lockeridge. The undulations through Kennet and past Silbury Hill and the Ridgeway before the long drag up towards Cherhil away from Beckhampton. Just prior to Calne the route takes an abrupt left turn to finish just past North Wilts Gold Course.

Mick Waite was also on hand to give some much appreciated moral support in this end of season event....
