Itinerary

 

Note that there are alternative routes you can opt for coming down via Redhill and Gatwick to Crawley; choose between NCN 20 or NCN 21, the latter the more direct route. When cycling through Crawley, pay close attention to the signage; it is continuous, but you have to keep your eyes peeled for it, as it is fairly minimal. Up until the M 23 motorway, you find yourself in a heavily urbanized zone. Things then change on the Worth Way greenway following the disused railway line to East Grinstead. This stretch is much more rural; the way has a hard surface, but the quality of the covering is mixed – make sure your bike has solid tyres. 

 

Alternative routes

You can branch off here for Three Bridges railway station.                          

As already indicated, coming from Gatwick, the NCN 21 offers a more direct route to Crawley than the NCN 20.
