Profile overview

I have grouped the profiles in about 30 to 35 miles segments and so all together cover whole of SDW.

For more detailed profiles see Profile page 1 and Profile page 2.

Please Note: ignore 'duration' times on elevations ! 

Winchester to Cocking approx. 34 miles 53 km, my sections 1,2 3, &4.

 

Cocking to Devils Dyke approx 29 miles / 46 km, sections 5, 6, 7 &8.

 

Devils Dyke to Eastbourne approx 33 miles /52 km.

 

Sections Ascend metres Descend metres
1, 2, 3, 4 1223 1175
5, 6, 7, 8 1129 1041
DDyke to Ebrne 1201 1395
Total 3 553 3611
  11 660 feet  

It is interesting to note that climbing for 1234 is similar to DDtoEbrne. Latter is 3 big climbs & 2 smaller, as 1234 Winchester to Cocking is lots of smaller ones.

Above only seem to add to 96 miles ? thought should be 100? my start is a mile out of Winchester. Also Winchester to DD adds to 62 miles, should be 65 miles. I seem to have lost a couple of miles somewhere ! Note Nov. 2007: just read that SDW via Seven Sisters is 100, but inland SDW route for bikes is 97 !

New Meon valley route adds 2.2 miles.
