Amersham To The Chilterns
So last month we ran down the top 3 routes that start in our beauty of a home town, Amersham. This month we’re increasing our scope a little to include our favourite short routes to cycle around Buckinghamshire. So grab your families bikes, get them in the car or on the bike rack and get cycling some of the best routes in our home county. Make sure you’ve checked your tyre pressures, breaks, gears and grab your helmet as we run down our top 3 family-focused routes.
Our favourite short cycling route in Buckinghamshire
The beauty of the Phoenix trail from the stunning little village of Princes Risborough. This route is a great family ride and totals about 7 miles there and 7 back, this loop is stunning and doesn’t have much hard riding, so it’s great for little riders and big riders alike. Best part about this is that even if you don’t have a bike rack or room in the boot you can get here using public transport as the starting location for this trail is the train station!
As usual we recommend using Komoot to track your trail, they have a great interactive map and cycling tips, you can even see the elevation and downhill. So check the link to get more route details.
Second best cycling route in Buckinghamshire
This stunning little loop from Longwick is super easy and accessible for any age of rider, what’s really nice about this loop is that there is an even amount of up to downhill ratio, meaning it’s easy on little legs and those just getting into cycling! In total this little route should take about an hour and totals only 10.9 miles, an easy afternoon ride out. Starting at the beautiful Orchard view farm and ending there too this route is a great way to have a ride out and a farm food lunch at the same time. They even do pizza!!
Third best cycling route in Buckinghamshire
Our third and final but by no means a bad route is this amazing little ride that follows the river Thames, crosses the Marlow suspension bridge and takes you around some amazing riverside trails. This trail totals about an hour and is only around 10 miles, it’s flat the entire way and a super-easy ride for the family. If you want to see some river scenes and grab a great bite to eat on the route this is the route for you. The Teapot Tea Shop is an amazing place to grab a quintessentially English bite to eat and is about halfway around this lovely little trail.
Check the Komoot route guide out to see the interactive map and more info on this stunning trail.
