3 day tour in England - Suggestions?

Postby sajets » Mon May 20, 2013 22:53 pm

Hey
I want to go cycling over the bank holiday weekend and am looking for suggestions on scenic and traffic free routes in England. Ideally the route will be around 300km long and mostly tarmac so I will be able to do 100km a day. I am based in London but happy to take the train out and back. At the moment I am looking at the Garden of England route (http://www.bigbikemap.com/routeinfo/Gar ... cle-Route-).

Any suggestions? Has anyone cycled the Garden of England route or part of it?

Thanks

I'm planning to ride in that area at some stage this year, starting and finishing near Windsor. My route doesn't follow the coast though and includes Ashdown Forest.
I wouldn't follow the Sustrans route though, simply because you get such varying surfaces, I'd always stick to my own on-road route.
Have a good ride, hope the weather's good and let us know how it goes.

Head North, the way of the Roses is a great route over three days, we did it in one and was tough.

I live near Hastings and have ridden much in Sussex and Kent, and lengths of the Garden of England route. There is a lot of beautiful countryside around here. What would you like to know?

Coast to Coast ?- there are a few variations so you end up near a reasonable sized train station.
