The 1962 ride preceded the opening of the Seven Bridge (which shortened the distance) and therefore follows the A48 from Cardiff, through Newport to join the A40 near Gloucester. Then following the A40 through Cheltenham, Whitney, passing to the north of Oxford, up and over the Chiltern Hills through High Wycombe and down into central London. A distance of 162 miles.
Work is in progress to research the exact original route and to assess what is safe and practical to follow on the commemorative ride. The maps illustrated here do not necessarily indicate the definitive route we will follow, more of an overview to help Moultoneers who intend to ride all or part of the ride, which section is best suited to them.
