Stone Circles and White Horses

A ride through the iconic Wiltshire landscape, famous for its prehistoric stone circles and mysterious white horses. Starting close to the Alton Barnes white horse, we pass by the amazing man-made mound of Silbury Hill (2400BC) before following the ancient pagan avenue to the Avebury world heritage site and its monolithic stone circles. A long flat section leads onto the climb of Hackpen Hill with views of its famous chalk figure etched into the landscape. A rollercoaster ride to the market town of Marlborough and its famous public school follows before returning to Alton Barnes.
