Cycle Steps
Starting on Fulling Mill Lane, cycle away from the village towards Kimpton road. Cycle along Kimpton road taking care to watch out for oncoming traffic, as of yet there is no cycling lanes as the road is narrow.
Cycle along Kimpton road for another 2 miles passing a cross roads and 2 side roads left. Take the next side road left up Tanyard Lane. This is quite a steep climb so take your time.
Carry along Tanyard Lane until you arrive at a T-Junction. Turn right onto Bridehall Lane. Cycle for another 3rd of a mile, just after the sharp bend to the left, take the first road right.
Cycling to the next junction turn right at the triangle and right again onto Codicote Road. Then take first left on to Sheepcote Lane. There is a gate across this road but it is still allowed to be used by cyclists.
Halfway down Sheepcote Lane, turn left off the road onto the old railway path. This takes you off road and into a nice path running through the forests.
Staying on the path until the end should bring you out on to Ayot St Peters road. Turn left and cycle for approximately a 3rd of a mile and take a side road right. This will take you up past Ayot St Peter and back into Welwym.
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
There is lots to see around these small villages each having their own part in history. Ayot St Peter used to be a popular stop along the now dismantled railway line. However the station was destroyed by a fire. There are great views from the top of Tanyard Lane and well worth the climb. The remains of Ayot St Lawrence can still be seen too.
