Great road route.Its good to see some longer road routes posted as there are too many 20/25 mile routes that dont really test you too hard.
I have cycled parts of that area and the areas away from main roads in the countryside are fantastic.
If I remember part of the route up by Overton was used in the 1994 Tour De France when the stage finished in Portsmouth.
