Sonning Common to Christmas Common - The Chilterns Cycleway 2020 section 3 of 11

Sonning Common, Oxfordshire, England

Hilly - New

The Chilterns Cycleway is a 170 mile/275 Km circular cycle route through the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, taking in the best of the Chilterns scenery. This is the toughest - but not the steepest - section of the route, beginning with a long rolling climb along narrow rutted lanes through the woods, passing Stoke Row before emerging from the trees with distant views towards Oxford. Turn north at Ipsden to ride to Ewelme, then tackle the long grinding climb up Swyncombe Hill, eventually to reach the Fox and Hounds pub at Christmas Common.
