- Henley on Thames MTB routes?
From memory if you go up the main road north(?), there’s a bridle way on the left before you leave town which gets you away from the place and was quite fun. It can link you to the great places mentioned above.
Sorry that’s vague but I did it once some years ago. Will try to remember to dig out the os map tonight.Posted 4 years ago
If you cycle up the Gteepish hill past george harrisons on old (Friar park?) and take the left signposted Pack and Prime Lane, thats turns into a bridleway with some fun steps on the way down then follows the valley and up to cross the Stoke Row Road. If you turn right onto the road then left about 50m or so onto a pretty crappy looking road (This turns into Dog Lane), can be a bit wet this and runs past the golf course to what used to be the dog pub.
Right onto the B481 and then somewhere on the lft is another bridleway which will drop you down into the hidden valley between the villages. Up the other side and follow your nsoe into Stoke Row for a pint.
Hmm takes ages describing routes, might try and draw a wee mapPosted 4 years ago
nick c – wednesday night 2, maybe 3 of us, staying at the Leander (the rowing club).
For those that have mentioned GPX I do have a garmin 500, I’d be really grateful for a file in my email if you have one, looking to do about 60/90 mins give or take.
WildHunter – do you mean the hill out of Henley that goes over the bridge, or the other way towards Fairmile?Posted 4 years ago
If you drive over the bridge the town hall is the big building on the square ahead of you. Pub called the Argyll on the left, Loch Fyne on the right hand side.
I lived out in Stoke Row so unfortunatly most of my routes are based on the descents into Henley and then looping back or bypassing Henley but in the surrounding Hills.
On google maps/OS map, look up Greatbottom and Coldbottom woods, some nice trails link up from the road through them into stoke row.
If from Stoke row you ride towards Highmoor theres some bridleways that go down near where the closed Dog and Duck pub is, you can probably follow your nose, follow any trail you feel like heading towards the fairmile ish. If you can end up near Lambridge woods theres some really fun singletrack and a fast descent into henley from there.Posted 4 years ago
Also….. on a tangent, the Bird in Hand does some of the best beer anywhere in the area and has a lovely dog. Best pub in Henley, though the Angel on a sunny day is alright….
I do miss the trails around there, nothing very technical but brilliant for long long days out on the bike in gorgeous countryside.Posted 4 years agoadshSubscriber

The descent along the panel fence? Surely the fastest feeling descent in the area!
It’s likely that you’ll have to head out on the Fairmile (use the cycle path on the right it’s a shit road) and turn right up the Assendons. A link to Bix/Nettlebed and you’re in business. Likely you’ll need lights.Posted 4 years ago
I found and copied this (click on the link). Any advice to adjust is welcome.
Edit – it runs clockwise btw…Posted 4 years ago
