From London to Brighton
We asked top blogger Alastair Humphreys to join us on a cycling break and share with you his route and top tips. Think living in London just means smoggy cycling and angry taxi drivers? Alistair shows us how quick it can be to leave the city behind and head out through the countryside of Surrey and West Sussex towards the sea at Brighton.
The route is the well know Wandle Trail, which can be easily found online in more detail. From the Thames at Wandsworth in London head out towards Croydon. From there follow signs to Coulsdon, on to Reigate, skirt round the west of Gatwick to avoid traffic and planes and aim for Crawley.
Then follow the Downs and Weald cycle route on the signposted National Route 20.
