|This was such a lovely route. My girlfriend and I started from East London so it was such a relief to get out into the Chilterns, which we'd never seen before. |
The route is a bit tricky to navigate at times and we went wrong twice on the way up but the scenery is beautiful. The Chilterns can be a little tricky if you're used to the flat roads of London like we are. Hill Road is called that for a very good reason!
If you ever fancy a nice day trip from London this comes highly recommended. Thank you Amy!
