Myself and my mate rode this last September ('08) from Broadstone to his sister's at Cowley. I planned it with OS Maps, pen and paper... we rode back the reverse route next day. The middle section is hideously steep. There's five repeat five climbs that top out at 20%! (Wylye, Dinton, Fovant Down {where the cap badges are}, Fifield Bavant and Woodminton).
I am proud of this ride as it was as challenging as any 200km Audax I have done; including the Dorset Coast to Axminster - which is also a killer.
Summary if you want killer climbs that twist your frame, pop your knees and test your chain... then the middle section of this ride is for you.
