This is one of a number of routes published by Goring Gap Cycling.
Over a mile of freewheeling down Dolesden Lane from Turville Heath towards Turville.
The beautiful Hambleden valley and nearby mill and lock on the River Thames.
The River Thames waterfront at Henley.
The initial part of the descent from Turville Heath is quite twisty, but then straightens out for an enjoyable descent.
Busy traffic in Henley.
The Café in the Barn at Turville Heath (16 miles) – walkers and cyclists only – no cars allowed.
Hambleden Village Shop (21 miles) also sells tea, coffee and cakes. It is open 7 days a week but there is limited inside seating.
The Chocolate Café in Henley (25.5 miles) is directly on-route, facing the river just after the traffic lights. It is under the same ownership as the Village Café in Goring. There are other cafes and pubs in Henley a short distance off-route.
Sonning Common Bakery (31 miles).
For an alternative route from Goring to Christmas Common via Swyncombe instead of Woodcote and Checkendon, see The Barn at Turville Heath.
This route takes a traffic-free path out of Henley. Turn left past the railway station and follow the path between the railway and an industrial estate. It then follows the Harspden Valley, which has a short sharp climb at the end of it. For an alternative route back to Goring via Rotherfield Greys, see The Assendon Valley.
