Great collection of well-made gravel tracks linking together the Grand Union Canal and the River Brent through a staggeringly green corridor of West London with a tiny detour to (IMO) the most beautiful tiny church in the metropolis.

Ride Description

Starting at Ealing Broadway (or Brentford for those from South of the River) the route crosses the manicured Walpole Park and through Lammas Park before passing under the M4 and joining the Grand Union.

Follows the Grand Union towards Braunston (a tinpot little village in Northampton but a canal super junction – Google it!) to the 1st Hanwell Lock where the route follows the River Brent for the next 5 miles on well made easy riding gravel paths. Look out for the Egyptian style columns of the early Wharncliffe Viaduct that carries the Great Western mainline high over the Brent Valley.

At mile 8 ¾ the route detours to the adorable Perivale Church, a tiny 12th-century white clapper board building that reminds you that not so long ago, Perivale was distinctly rural.

You finally leave the Brent, climb through Fox Wood before descending back to Ealing.

    A great off road adventure so close to the centre of London

    Riding alongside the river Brent and Grand Union Canal make this a varied ride with a countryside feel to it
