Just tried out the route I was thinking of doing from next week. Cut through Richmond Park, across
the A3 at Robin Hood, through Wimbledon common. Er ... it's a little muddy in wimbledon common.
Maybe I'll just take that route on the way home ... Now goes back to study map as no way am I
cycling up the
A3 ...

The place I'm going to has no showers, how do you all get around this, some sort of travel cloth to
sponge yourself down, and lots of deodrant?

Richmond park to roehampton gate, up to the junction, turn right and you are heading into wandsworth
to join the A3 where it is slower and manageable.

In my yoof I commuted up the A3 to London. Not the nicest of rides.

From what I remember the A3 is not too bad till you get to robin hood roundabout at which point it's
more like a motorway than a normal road.

Out of Richmond park at Roehampton gate, turn right at the mini roundabout into Danebury Avenue.
Follow that through the estate to the traffic lights, go straight across up to Putney Heath. If you
want to pick up the A3 again on West Hill, then go along to the traffic lights, turn right onto
Putney Hill and then first left into Putney Heath Lane, which will bring you to West Hill after
Tibbets Corner.

If you want to cut through Southfields into Wandsworth, then when you get to Putney Heath, take the
right turn into Telegraph Road, at the end keep going past the pub (the Telegraph) into the car park
and at the other end of the car park is a footpath/bicycle path which goes down to the footpath
underneath Tibbets corner and will let you out onto Wimbledon Park Side.

Excellent, confirms my idea to go on to Roehampton gate. I plan to take the Jasmin trail around
Rchmond park, exit at roehampton gate. All the way to Telegraph road, however here I may pick up the
route where I left off. Basically, cross Putney Hill and work my way through the back roads, namely
Putney Heath Lane, Rusholme, Holmbush, Keswick and Oakhill Road.

Thanks to all for helping out.
