|This is a mixed route of paths, cycle lanes and roads, where some of the paths are stoney and uneven in places.
Outbounds goes via Coate Water Park, along circle paths that are stoney and uneven in places, to Chiseldon. It then joins the B4005, a 50mph single road to Wroughton. Go through the town onto the A4361. There is a cycle path on the southbound side of the main road from the large traffic lights at Pipers Way, B4006, going towards Wroughton, but they are poorly signposted when coming from Wroughton.
The single cyclepath continues past Natwest and Intel but finishes when it reaches Marlborough Road. When you reach the dual carriageway it starts again.

|An alternative route is turn left down Day House Lane, just before Sun Inn, keep on this lane go under the A419. Then next left and over the M4 towards Badbury. Past pub on the left, where the road forks, just by the phonebox go left up the hill and on until you come to a t-junction. Turn right to the crossroads with A419 go straight across(care), cont. on then turn right into Chisedon. Cont. on left at mini roundabout then on till you reach a sharp bend to left, where you rejoin the route shown. This avoids Coate Water, which can be very busy in summer. Ray |
