      Today was the day for climbers. We faced a saw tooth climbing profile on the 'roller coaster' South Downs Way which would take us to the finish in Winchester. Epic climbs, yellow rapeseed fields and blue sky saw us through to the end. A little worse for wear than when we started, we celebrated and reminisced about an epic 4 days of riding, taking us through the heart of England on some of the most remote trails any of us had ever experienced.

      10 countries in a day. It felt like we'd crossed several borders today as we negotiated more types of terrain than we could count. Our third day took us through our first large city - Reading where we were pleasantly surprised at how the route negotiated the bustling heart of this city. Paths and canals escorted us through and out into the countryside once more where we enjoyed leafy alleys and open landscapes once more. Nothing could have prepared us for the sandy pits near Farnham and the rocky Devils Punchbowl climb to come as we neared the end point. At some points it felt like we were riding in the south of Spain or Majorca, the sun, smell of pine trees and sand combined drained our strength but all was worth it for the cold beer at the finish.

      A cold night meant a slow start in the morning. We were quickly woken by the beauty of Avebury and it's famous Stone Circle followed by a sharp climb onto the Ridgeway.Rutted chalk single-track proved challenging and technical as we pushed forward into a strong headwind which lashed directly at us on the exposed top of the ridge. We enjoyed the cool breeze and expansive views over England from our vantage point and relished in the smooth grassy descents. A day packed with Neolithic sites, the Uffington white horse and Wayland's Smithy did not disappoint.

      A few King Alfred's Way highlights from day 1. We set off from the statue not knowing what to expect, the first 4-5 miles felt very normal until we hit the city limits and emerged into the countryside. Wide open landscapes of hills and farmland stood before us. It seemed that we timed the trip perfectly with the leaves turning green and blossoming for the first time after a long cold winter.The weather was perfect, we'd lucked out and enjoyed some of the UK's finest bone dry gravel as we bombed down bridleways and farmland to the Old Sarum Hill fort. We stopped for lunch in Amesbury before the route got too remote again as it snaked over the top of the Salisbury Plains. With the weather that we had, it felt like we were riding through the Serengeti at times. The earth was cracked, dry and the rutted paths made the going very tough, but the views over the old military training grounds made every drop of sweat worth it.We rolled into camp around 6pm after a long days ride, where cold beers, a few llamas and our campsite awaited us.
