M7 Bikepath to Lapstone Hill

Postby NotFlyingScot » Tue Mar 06, 2018 3:20 pm

With M4 breakdown / cycle lane effectively closed for the foreseeable future can anyone provide a detailed (and relatively safe) alternative route to get to and from bottom of Lapstone Hill from Kings Langley?

Westbound: https://www.strava.com/routes/12166380
^^I'm doing this in peak hour so I don't like to use the GWH west of Minchinbury as there is no shoulder. Crossing Northern Rd is dodgy, but the best option I can make.

^^Coming in via Penrith is flatter than Glenmore/Orchard Hills. I normally do this route mid-morning so I'm happier to sit on the shoulder of the GWH.


Happy hunting.

Whenever I do M7 to Penrith and back I avoid all the GWH and main roads with this back route.

Many thanks for these suggestions. I'll check them out. Been too long since I rode in the mountains.
