Route Help: London to Didcot

richaricha Posts: 2,020
I am due in Didcot for lunch tomorrow and am thinking about riding there from London.

Google walking route is pretty much:
London(Putney)-Maidenhead A4
Maidenhead-Didcot A4130
50miles

The advantages of this are that the directions will be easy to remember. However, I am sure there must be some scenic, quieter, better variations.

I'd certainly like to keep the route below about 60 miles

Any ideas on a decent route.

Many thanks,
Rich
