43-mile route

Outward leg is the same as the 40-mile route. After coffee the route heads east on the B2177 for a mile before turning north through the Hundred Acres wood, then northwest through Swanmore and Bishops Waltham. This is a good basis for extending into a full day ride to the east, perhaps by continuing a bit further on the B2177 then heading towards Hambledon.
