A cycle ride around the hills to the North West of Alresford. There a few short steep stretches going anti-clockwise. If you go the other way its an almost single rise to Medstead. Very little traffic except Whitehill leaving Alresford from the South and crossing the A31 at Four Marks. There is a village shop in Ropley near the church. At Four Marks you will find a cycle shop called Owens Cycles, Tesco Express and a baker. Medstead has a village shop, a hardware store (worth an explore if you looking for something no longer available elsewhere) and the Castle of Comfort pub.
