Cycle Steps
Left out of the station, right onto A321 to Wokingham. Down Molly Millar's Lane to avoid the level crossing. B3349 through Barkham to Arborfield Cross. Take Swallowfield Road. In Swallowfield, pick up B3349 again to Riseley. Briefly onto B3011, then downhill to Bramshill. Through the Eversleys and Yateley on the B3272 to Blackwater. Short stint on the A30 and up the A321 and A3095 Forester's Way back into Crowthorne.

Its virtually impossible to avoid A roads in this area, but they're usually wide enough or have cycle paths along the side for it not to be a problem. The rest of the route was pretty quiet on a weekday afternoon. There are a few hills, but nothing too challenging.

2 bike shops in Crowthorne + 1 at Blackwater.

Just got back from riding this (staying with friends in crowthrone and I needed a decent spin to maintain my sanity :-) )..

A nice route with good rolling hills (not too big). Took 1:40 at resonably rapid (for me!) pace.

Not too 'squiggly' (circuitous) so it lent itself well to a bit of head down day dreaming. Some of the roads a bit busy but nothing really scary or worrying.

Thanks for the route!
