One of the type of rides we do are our Scenic Rides, mainly led by Adrian Rogers. These rides are cross country rides designed to take in some great views and scenery along the route. These are short to medium distance rides, with some climbing involved, but nothing technically challenging. You will need a bit of fitness to get round, so not suitable for someone brand new to mountain biking, but if you’ve been out a few times you should be fine. They are similar to our Tuesday night short rides if you’ve been on one of those.
All scenic rides get their own tag here on the website and there own calendar, which you can see below.
We also post previous routes we’ve done here.
Three Trees to Rockley
This route starts and finishes at the Three Trees Farm Shop and Cafe, where you can park and grab food afterwards. If the shop is closed, there is a small free car park next to it as well.
The route heads up and round the lower side of Barbury Castle, along the Ridgeway and down into Rockley Valley, before heading back via the old railway line to the Three Trees. It is a fairly gentle 24km and 250m of climbing.

Foxhill to the Uffington via Hinton Parva
This route takes in the breath taking coombes at Hinton Parva, before ascending back to the Ridgeway and out to Uffington for another stunning view. The return is via Wit Coombe.
27km and 440 metres of climbing in all.
