- Critique My Commute Route! Bracknell To Twickenham
So, I’ve finally made the move out of London. Looks like there are some nice routes around, but getting into London across the river seems to be a bit of a mare.
What I’ve come up with is this:
My plan is to follow the A329 from Bracknell all the way through Windsor Park, then cut through Egham to avoid the A30, down Kingston Road, join the A308 (Staines Road West) for a bit and then go up Chertsey Road until I join the A315.
What do you reckon?

I would agree with the above comments, the A308 is dual-carriageway and when it’s moving it’s fast (people know where the speed cameras are). Similarly the A316 is a continuation of the M3 and people will happily drift onto that section (2-3 lanes) at 70-80mph at 07:30. I’m surprised if there isn’t a bye-law banning bikes and pedestrians from the elevated sections tbh.
If you are heading for the A4/A315 in Hounslow why not carry on once through Egham through Ashford and either take the B3003 to the A315 and follow it up, or go through Ashford and then Feltham and up the A244?
EDIT: Having re-read your post, avoid the A308 by going straight over from Kingston Road through Ashford to meet the Chertsey Road (A244).Posted 4 years agojono1982Member
This was basically my old commute a few years ago, lived in Ealing, worked in Wokingham
Definatly Ascot and Virginia Water, down Egham hill was fun on a fixie!Posted 4 years ago
A30 really not that bad, very wide so plenty of room, usually stacked up with traffic jam every day anyway..
