I'm thinking of riding the ridgeway over the Easter holidays. I am looking for a ride that I can get to from home (Isle of Wight) without taking the car. The Overton Hill start is about 65 miles from the Lymington ferry so an 80 mile ride from mine. I'm thinking of riding to the start and biving, there seems to be almost a mini camp-site going on at the start on the Google earth street view
I'd then ride the double, bivi again and then back to the ferry.
Do any locals have any thoughts what the going might be like in a typical March? Impossible to answer I appreciate but I noticed all the recorded completions on the website have been done between June and September. I won't be troubling anyone on the leader-board
but wondered if it's going to be so hard going in March that I'd be better off looking something else?
