I need to plan a route from London (Marble arch ish) to Portsmouth (ferry terminal) but I don't really have any knowledge of most of the places or roads on the route.
Route needs to be as direct as possible, avoid major roads but not be too difficult to navigate (but GPS can assist us here).
Here is my starter for 10
So where am I going wrong?
The route needs to be suitable for people on road bikes. My experience of almost all national cycle routes is that they are OK for road bikes with one or two exceptions. Are the sections on this route OK. Is the route out of London the best way (we will be going mid morning on a Friday)? Any other bits where another road will be a lot nicer to ride on? Etc?
