Classic & Luxury itinerary day-by-day

Goring to Wallingford and back
Make your way to Goring and settle into your village accommodation where your bicycle will be waiting for you. Relax in this lovely riverside setting where two villages straddle the Thames and its weir. There's a flat and gentle ride awaiting you along the river and through hamlets and villages to riverside Wallingford. Boasting a museum and open air swimming pool, there's plenty to discover in this attractive town. Retrace your route back to Goring where there's an interesting selection of eateries to tempt you.

Goring to Henley and back
Today your ride explores the Thames and its immediate villages and towns via bridleways and quiet country lanes. Enjoy the weir at Whitchurch, the delights of medieval Mapledurham and its mill and the pretty villages of Sonning and Shiplake. Elegant Henley has lots to offer associated with its rowing fame and brewing history. In July and August you can hop on the late afternoon river boat for a trip part of the way back to Goring. For other times of the year, the return route from Henley is by bike through the stunning Chiltern Hills.

Through the Chiltern Hills to Goring
Enjoy a different but equally delightful scene today as you wind your way into the Chiltern Hills. We have chosen a kind climb with wonderful woodlands and quality pubs to reward you. The rest of your route is gentle or downhill through quiet villages and a rural scene that has changed remarkably little over the last few centuries.
