South Warnborough, 50 miles

 A medium ride route (but note that the coffee stop at South Warnborough is closed on Sundays). Out via the Candover Valley, back via Bentworth and Medstead. 

This 50-mile route was designed by Julie Byers for the Medium ride group. She notes: "It is a gentle uphill climb most of the way to South Warnborough through the Candovers - deceptive(!) because it's pretty undulating on the return particularly to begin with. It is mainly on quiet roads but several busy roads are crossed at various intervals. There are lovely views towards Odiham after Upton Grey as the route turns towards South Warnborough where there are also bluebell woods in the Spring."

There's a coffee stop at South Warnborough Village Shop & Cafe (23.5 miles) which at time of writing opens 7am-3pm Mon-Fri and 8am-2pm Saturday but is closed on Sunday. Check the cafe list for up-to-date information. The ride also passes fairly close to the Avenue garden centre near Lasham.
