Of the 9.2 miles between Goring and Reading stations, less than 1.5 miles are on through roads. The rest is on an interesting mix of quiet cul de sacs and bridleways.
View of the River Thames from a number of different angles.
Steep steps on the bridleway near Coombe Park outside Whitchurch.
Staggered crossing of the narrow B471 in Whitchurch, with limited visibility.
Busy traffic between St Peters Church and Cavershame Bridge in Reading
Lots of choice in both Goring and Reading. Nothing en route in between.
This route can be combined with one or more of the other Goring - Reading routes for an off-road leisure ride.
If it's not muddy this route is very suitable for hybrid or touring bikes.
