to jono- I see, thanks. So the thing showed by google for camden to thames was showing from camden to the gloustershire end of the thames, and the thames continues to southend on sea.
to backstop, when you say "south from camden in a straight line",
I see on that map, camden road, camden town, and the thames river.
It looks like a short distance between camden (e.g. camden road or camden town), and the thames river.
Judging by this map
the distance from camden road or camden town to the thames river is less than 2 minutes.
so i'm not sure what you are referring to
You write that "You could make it from Camden to the Thames on mostly segregated tracks and back would make it 10 miles or so"
Average cycling speed is apparently about 13mph so 10 miles would be (10/13)*60 = about 45min
Is it possible to show on a map what route you are talking about?
Were you considering if i'm starting cycling somewhere far north of camden road station?
I'm wondering if you had in mind
cycling 45min down the A400
If so, wouldn't that be starting far north of camden.. Like I know a guy that cycled from Burnt Oak tube station or Edgware tube station to Camden in about 30min-40min. That's starting far outside camden.
So i'm a bit puzzled as to what route you are referring to?
You're saying "Camden has a some longer distance connected tracks in North London" and " Camden to the Thames on mostly segregated tracks and back would make it 10 miles or so" and "go south from Camden in a straight line"
