LondonWalesLondon takes you from West London to Chepstow and back. We supply you with a turn by turn route sheet and a GPS file shortly before the ride.
Audax routes are only advisory – you’ll just need to call at a number of set points to guarantee that you’ve covered the distance. If you choose to avoid some of the hills and take a slightly longer route you’re welcome to do so.
The suggested route covers:
- Chalfont St Peter (Depart)
- Woodstock (compulsory control point)
- Stow on the Wold
- Guiting Power
- Tewkesbury (compulsory control point)
- Walford (compulsory control point)
- Yat Rock
- Tutshill (compulsory control point at 217km)
- Severn Bridge
- Somerset Monument
- Hawkesbury Upton
- Lambourn (compulsory control point)
- Hampstead Norreys
- Sonning Common
- Chalfont St Peter (Arrivee)
NB. From Lambourn many riders decide to follow the A4 during the night when the road is quieter.
Audax routes are not way marked – before the advent of GPS, being able to navigate was a big part of the challenge! Typically, riders now spend a little time understanding the route which is designed to avoid busy roads as much as possible; if you try to navigate from town to town on your own it is likely that you’ll miss some of the more peaceful roads that make up the suggested route.
