Great looking route. I'm hoping to use the West section to get from Woking to Uxbridge.

I'm trying to find the route round the West side of Heathrow. It seems the section from the village of Stanwell Moor to the A4 Colnbrook Bypass has been fenced off.
I'm trying to find a good route to get past T5, Heathrow. There seems little option but to get onto the busy A3044, Stanwell Moor Rd

From the current [Nov 2008] satellite view on Google Maps, it looks like there was a track going right through the builders temporary "caravan city". But when I go there on my bike, it has been fenced off, and landscaped. How would you approach Hounslow Council to re-instate some cycle path for this section ?

Does anyone have a suggestion for an alternative path covering the section ?
regards, Wolfy

This is a great route, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a very interesting route with a lot of variety although it is not beautiful throughout however. There are many ugly industrial sights and loud machinery noises along the Grand Union Canal section. Sadly there is a lot of rubbish lying about. (also evidence of drug taking on the tow path).

And then you turn a corner and you unexpectedly have a beautiful view of the canal stretching into the distance. There are many quiet, peaceful and attractive sections even on this canal.

(I rode the route anticlockwise).
Highly recommended, I will go again.

I have now ridden this route twice and I would like to suggest a slight change on the Staines to West Drayton section.
Use the cycle path along the foot of the slope of the Western embankment of the King George VI reservoir.

Then Hithermoor Road, Horton Road, Sprout Lane, under the A3113, Sprout Lane North, Bedfont Ct, along the A3044 (this is a busy road, I rode on the pavement) Turn left at the Longford Roundabout into the Bath Road.

A short distance on the right there is a path heading north. Follow this and then cross the A4 into Accommodation Lane and then follow the route on the map to Cricketfield Road. The latest Explorer map shows the route now that all the construction work for Terminal 5 is complete.
