I did it this weekend with a couple of friends, its a nice route, although we measured it at 25miles. Pay extra attention around Weybridge where you have to go on the roads, and after Old Windsor the Thames Path is very broken and not good for cycling so best to follow the cycle route along the road into Windsor from there.

I really enjoy this route in the summer. However, you missed out what for me is the best bit - cycling up through Runnymede Park! Not only do you get a good view across West London from the RAF memorial at the top of the hill, but the downhills through the villages on the approach to Windsor Park are good fun.

I have just done this route the other way round all the way to Richmond. Enjoyed the journey once I found the start in Old Windsor as I wanted to do as much of it along the river as possible.

The part in Weybridge annoyed me as it takes you away from the river and onto busy roads for quite a while. I wonder if it is possible to skip this part by not crossing the river at Chertsey bridge and just carrying on. Is there a path on that side?

I cycled a slightly longer route by setting out from Wandsworth and apart from from the relatively small section on the roads around Weybridge etc it's a really nice cycle. The path towards the end at Windsor does get a little narrow.

One of the best rides to get out of the big smoke and enjoy the Thames...I decided to pick up this route by cheating slightly.

We took the train to Windsor jumped onto our mighty steeds and proceeded to follow the Thames Path all the way back to Kingston where the path is more accustomed to off road and mountain bikes. We left the path there and then cycled through Richmond Park and onto home which is Ladbroke Grove.

An additional 10 miles or so.
I think you have all missed the most fun and picturesque part of this ride though. Do not cross the Chertsey bridge.

Continue through the grassy meadows to rejoin the path which passes some amazing waterside houses and house boats on the North side of Weybridge.

You then have the opportunity to pay the ferryman when he takes you to the other side! Granted it's 3 quid to take you and your bike across but it's worth it.

I managed this cycle on a vintage 10 speed racer - keep to the path people and stay off the roads...

Did this route this morning - lovely early morning seeing all the houseboats wake up. Got a bit lost around Staines, I didn't realise you have to cross back over and go on the south side again.

Agree that the path does get pretty narrow and cut up though Old Windsor but quite fun for the old suspension. Once I got to the end here I did a loop through Datchet and right past Windsor castle - somehow seemed fitting to actually see the castle (which you can't do from the end point here).

Then I cycled all the way back to Kingston. Clocked the ride at 47m - which meant I was very ready for lunch!
