I didn’t plan my route beforehand and just went where the wind took me! cycling route in Oxfordshire and Wiltshire – here we go! At the start of the ride I was planning to complete just over 50 miles but with a lot of determination before the 50 mile point I decided I would set myself the goal of getting past the…

Don’t mean to brag, but they’re great. Was really keen on putting them to the test with a gravel cycling route, and that was just the right weekend to do that: one “gang” member is glamping, the other one had friends from abroad isolating with them, So I took the Trekky with his hybrid, to test a gravel cycling route from Hatfield (30 mins from London) to St. Albans.
by Cyclist Sharon, rides Road, MTB 📏Distance: 47 miles ⏱️ Duration: 3:44 hours 🚴 Difficulty: Intermediate 🚲 Terrain: road Come July, I took advantage of the fair weather and took on a ride through the tranquil and picturesque Countryside of West Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds. A cycling route in Oxfordshire is something that this blog was lacking thus far, and was very happy to pick up the gauntlet. Though this area is perfect all year long, especially when it’s still warm, this route provides a perfect scene to wash your eyes with breathtaking rural English views.
by Cyclist Yoni & Cyclist Chris, both ride Brompton 📏Distance: 27 miles ⏱️ Duration: 2:30 hours 🚴 Difficulty: Beginner 🚲 Terrain: road Last Sunday we’ve taken on a rather “social cycling route”. It was fairly long, but when you’re riding in a group, the aim is not necessarily to find the highest cat-hill to climb or the hardest terrain to cross. Instead, we opted for a route where we could wash our eyes with great city-scapes , with a moderate plus effort level. We’ve named this route ‘Five Parks’. Recommended for beginners with enough stamina for two and a half…
by Cyclist Yoni, rides Brompton, Gravel and MTB 📏Distance: 18-18.5 miles ⏱️ Duration: 1:35 hours 🚴 Difficulty: intermediate 🚲 Terrain: road/uneven Last Sunday we’ve taken on not only cycling up hill on a North to London route, but also 15-20 mph winds, which kept us humble throughout the course. The Folly Arch, which lies at the end of Potters Bar, was our half-way point, although if u have several hours, this can very well turn to a gravel/expert route all the way to Brookmans Park. A good cycling up hill effort if you want to practice some more than moderate…
by Cyclist Yoni, rides Brompton, Gravel and MTB 📏Distance: 9.99 miles ⏱️ Duration: 45-50 hours 🚴 Difficulty: intermediate 🚲 Terrain: road/uneven (potential gravel) I have nicknamed this cycling route Hampstead & Highate morning due to the fact that it mainly runs on roads with no separated cycling lanes, so it’s better to do in the calm morning hours, however this is a recommendation only. The name is also deceiving as it doesn’t pass through Hampstead nor Highgate villages. It’s an endurance stimulating hilly cycling route with 1,000 feet plus elevation gain, so get the quadriceps ready!
by Cyclist Yoni, rides Brompton, Gravel and MTB 📏Distance: 8 miles ⏱️ Duration: 45 minutes 🚴 Difficulty: Beginner 🚲 Terrain: Road As lockdown doesn’t seem to be easing much yet, and congestion charge in central London is up and imposed 7 days a week, we find solace in the roads of the City of London, which remain clear and cyclist-friendly. An easy beginners’ 8 miles London cycling route covering some beautiful old buildings, and rich in history.
by Cyclist Yoni, rides Brompton, Gravel and MTB 📏Distance: 15-20 miles ⏱️ Duration: 1:35-2 hours 🚴 Difficulty: intermediate 🚲 Terrain: Road/Uneven A wise man named Tony once told me “I don’t know why everyone moans about the weather in England, if you don’t like it – the next day you get something else.” And indeed, a sunless morning turned a North London cycling route to a soaking experience, but for the sake of Cyclondon Blog, we’ve decided to go on with the intermediate hilly adventure. A quick (1:30-2h) circular route which will get your quadriceps toned.
by Cyclist Yoni., rides Brompton, Gravel and MTB 📏Distance: 15 miles ⏱️ Duration: 1:15-1:40 hours 🚴 Difficulty: beginner-intermediate 🚲 Terrain: Road/Uneven As one of our suggested routes to start off our Cyclondon Blog, I’ve decided to go with an easy and relatively flat cycling route in London, that combines roads and uneven pavement.
by the Londoner The problem with Facebook groups is that there are too many of them. Finding a group of serious people for cycling in London is hard, finding one that wants to actually meet up outside the virtual world is even harder! The Londoner has found such one: Rides on Bromptons: London Brompton Club Group is a set of wonderful people who meet up in the UK and do what they like to do best: Ride. On Bromptons. Mainly.
