Itinerary

This stage is being improved by Sustrans (in charge of the National Cycle Network) and relevant local authorities along the route. Take particular care crossing certain suburbs and towns where the route isn't yet laid out. Cyclists who are in a rush or not used to very urban environments can easily take a train out of central London to avoid this stage. If taking a train, avoid rush hours from Monday to Friday.                                                  From Wandsworth south to Carshalton, the route follows the winding but pleasant Wandle Way, with some stretches leading you through very beautiful parks. After Carshalton, the route from Coulsdon to Redhill mainly follows small roads up and across the North Downs, but this route is provisional. A steep slope takes you down into Redhill just south of the M 23 motorway. You arrive in Redhill at the level of the railway station, passing under a bridge leading to Noke Drive.

Greater London

Greater London includes both London and the region immediately surrounding it. It's a vast urban area with a population of some 10 million people. It's crossed by the Thames River and has countless roads, railway lines and other routes crossing it. You can savour cosmopolitan contemporary British life in London; you can also enjoy numerous very well-maintained parks, which people from all generations use and appreciate, especially as they offer bucolic corners in the midst of the metropolis. The Avenue Verte adopts the Wandle Way cycle paths to head south out of London, crossing many typical parks. 

 

 

 

 

The Thames                                                                                                                

The Thames runs for 346 km, crossing the south of England from west to east, flowing through Oxford, Reading, Windsor and Eton before reaching Greater London and continuing to its estuary in the North Sea. The Thames has played a major part in the history of Great Britain and of London. As well as having a clear river and maritime role, it has proved a source of inspiration for artists as well as a much-loved playground for boat races and regattas. It's a joy wandering along its banks, especially where eateries open up their terraces. In addition, cyclists can enjoy it close up; the Nataional Cycle Network (NCN) Route 4 covers a long stretch of the Thames, allowing you to discover many of its twists and turns, notably from Oxford as far as Greenwich.
