|This is a nice route and keeps off the busy A345 between Amesbury and Upavon. The route between Amesbury to Upavon is rolling hills and then gets easier between Upavon and Avebury.|

|Actually, I haven't ridden the route but am hoping to, in reverse (E/W Kinnet to Amesbury, then back the next day). But I need to find a place near E/W Kinnet or Marlborough to rent two bikes (me and my wife) in May. Any ideas?|
