This is a lovely short flat ride running from Thame to Princes Risborough.
The route is largely off road and takes you along a safe tranquil path with splendid views of the Chilterns in the distance. As such it's a good one for anyone looking for a family cycle ride or an easy walk. It runs for just under 7 miles along the former Princes Risborough to Oxford railway line with some interesting artwork dotted along the route too.
