The route crosses back over the New Forest, skirts Winchester to Alresford which has shops and cafes and then takes in the easy climb back over the Downs via the Candovers. It’s back roads to Winnersh and on to Maidenhead where a very easy route, mainly lit, takes the southern edge of the Chilterns to the end.
