Watch again: Introducing King Alfred's Way


During a live discussion with host Anna Glowinski in September, we discussed how King Alfred’s Way came about from Cycling UK’s Sophie Gordon, while also getting the impressions from the route’s first riders Stef Amato from, Katherine Moore one half of the voices behind the Unpaved Podcast, and KAW guide writer and mountain bike test, Guy Kesteven.

King Alfred’s Way is the latest long distance off-road bike packing trail put together by Cycling UK and launched in the summer of 2020. 

Named after the Anglo-Saxon ruler of the ancient kingdom of Wessex, it runs for 350km (220 miles) passing through 10,000 years worth of British history from stone circles, Iron Age hill forts, medieval cathedrals and more – it’s a mash up of adventure and culture that you can do from the comfort of your saddle.

There was plenty discussion of what bike is best and also audience suggestions of where Cycling UK should go next with their long distance trail planning.
