|Please note that on the section "Follow the Thames Path" take you through a very small kissing gate which we had to lift the bikes over (with the help of some walkers). Then - as this section was NOT a bridleway, we walked our bikes to Wharf Road. I'd recommend taking the Shillingford Road to Henley Road rather than the foot path.|
