I'm wondering if anyone knows a route from London (preferably Clapham / Wandsworth) to Box Hill that avoids the A217 south of Sutton?
Got a bit of a fright on that road last week when I had a few half-eaten bananas thrown at me followed by a close call with a long truck.
The only alternate route I can figure is through Surrey Downs. Does anyone here know of a more direct route to Box Hill while still avoiding the A217?
I'm planning a mammoth cycle quest from London to Sydney in 2011.
My objective is to leave in Sept/Oct 2011 and cycle though west and east Europe in to Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India across to Malayisa/Thailand by boat and down to Singapore to fly to Darwin for the last leg through the middle of Australia and in to Sydney..
