The Rowlands Castle cycle ride is an 8 mile all road trail which starts and finishes in the village.
Just after the railway bridge, there are some excellent open access chalk downland, Chalton Down. It can be seen from the side of the road, beyond the main railway line. Rights of way access can be found along the roadside – one just before the railway bridge, the other on the road at the chicane.
At Old Idsworth to your left you will see St Huberts, also known as ‘The Little Church in a Field’. This church contains some of the oldest wall paintings in southern England, dated c.1330, and the only known one of St Hubert. It is also the site of a
deserted medieval village.
Or you can follow the 22 mile trail through East Meon, Petersfield and Buriton taking you on road and across some bridleways. This route will take approximately 5 to 6 hours. The trail starts and finishes in Petersfield.
