There are numerous safe, scenic cycle routes in and around Eton.
One of the best is the Eton section of the Sustrans National Cycle Path, Route markers 4-61.
This splendid family-friendly circuit takes in Windsor Castle, Eton College, Dorney Lake, the Jubilee River and the River Thames.
Easily accessed from railway stations at Slough and Maidenhead (from London Paddington) and Windsor and Eton Riverside (from London Waterloo), it is ideal for those looking for a day out from London.
The Jubilee River is a seven-mile-long man-made flood channel running between Maidenhead and Windsor.
It provides a haven for fish, birds, animals and people including the Dorney Wetlands, an area specially created to provide a superb breeding and feeding habitat for many bird species.
A well-surfaced three-meter-wide path follows its entire length, with most of this being available to cyclists.
There are also numerous attractive cycle paths through Windsor Great Park, though do check ahead as occasionally access can be restricted.
