This area map shows the National Cycle Network and local routes in this area. It covers the Thames Valley area of the South East region of England, including Oxford, Didcot, Reading, Guildford, Newbury, Windsor and Eton.
The Thames Valley provides some of the most picturesque landscapes in England, not to mention beautiful cities, market towns and villages best appreciated by bike. Explore the Beech woodlands and the swooping Red Kites of the Chiltern Hills, the 1000 acres of serene lakes, gardens and woodlands of Windsor Great Park, or navigate the cycling city of Oxford, surrounded by the charming market towns of Wallingford, Abingdon and Thame. Many of the routes are flat, traffic-free and family friendly, but you can have more of a challenge by winding your way through the Chiltern Hills on quiet country lanes.
This pocket-sized colour map shows clearly mapped on-road and traffic-free paths, easy to read contours, and detailed inset maps for the major towns and cities as well as recommended linking routes connecting the NCN with quiet roads. The map also features 4 day rides with directions and a description of the area, highlighting key cycle routes, local history and places of interest.
