National Cycle Route 20
This popular Sustrans National Cycle Route is made up of two sections. The first runs from Wandsworth to Merstham, with part of this section running along the Wandle Trail. The traffic trail takes you along the River Wandle through the outskirts of the capital.
The second section runs from Pyecombe to the coast at Brighton.
The route on the map below shows both sections but with the missing section using National Cycle Route 21 and the old Route 20 from Crawley down to Pycombe. This makes a complete route from Wandsworth in London to Brighton.
