Cycling in the Chilterns

Cycling in the Chilterns

Sustainable Wallingford’s Transport Group promotes and campaigns for sustainable transport.

We work to improve cycling and walking facilities and public transport links and try to influence the county’s local transport plans, bus subsidy reviews, economic development plans for the town and local planning strategy. One key objective has been a safe and convenient cycling link between Wallingford and Cholsey Station, our nearest rail link. Thanks to the intervention of Cholsey Parish Council, a joint-use footpath/cyclepath has been created on the west side of Wallingford Road between Wallingford and Cholsey. Please use it!

We are looking for safe cycling for children as well as adults. Click for tips from Wallingford school.

We have campaigned successfully for more cycle racks in the town centre and have been involved in the ‘Better Ways to School’ project which resulted in new pedestrian crossings on St John’s Road and Station Road in Wallingford.

In March 2013 we were able to reprint our first leaflet (first published in 2009), ‘Cycle rides into the Chiltern Hills’, thanks to financial assistance from the Chilterns Conservation Board, Wallingford Town Council, Community Action Groups Oxfordshire,  Crowmarsh Parish Council and Benson Parish Council.

We published a second leaflet, ‘Cycle rides west from Wallingford’ in 2011, part funded by South Oxfordshire District Council, Grassroots Grants, Wallingford Town Council and East Hagbourne, South Moreton and Brightwell cum Sotwell Parish Councils.
