    That's precisely why you have to post in the audax thread! Looks lovely the parts you did do. Although, your Wales trips are usually not too bad.

    Update: I got a Wandrer email this week saying I've done 44.9% of Greater London's apparently 24,210km of roads. Most rides, which are usually a couple hours, I get about 15km of new roads. Doesn't look like I'm going to run out of things to do any time soon. Still have unridden areas within a 25min ride away from home. My strava rides with RER in the title have gone over the 700 mark.
    For London, Jonathan France is on 61.2%!

    Definitely had quite a lot of very busy roads in the first 120km. As for the hilliness of the Chilterns, the route was way gentler than the Orbit. Remember that one having a brutal road called Stoney Lane right at the end. Circuit doesn't have anything like that.

    I did the London Circuit 400 this weekend. Wasn't expecting to be amazed, but really enjoyed it. I'd done the London Orbital 300 a few years ago and loved seeing London from all the angles. This was very different, with much less London connection after the first third. Lots of Saturday morning London traffic probably not everyone's cup of tea for audaxing, or the queue for the cable car, but I'm happy with that. Kent down to Tonbridge was hilly and bumpy. Then straight west into the sunset along increasingly quiet smooth rolling hills to Haslemere. Worth Way was a highlight. Felt really good on the bit straight up to Beaconsfield services after a can of coke at Slough to wake me up. Beaconsfield at 2am on a Saturday morning is pretty interesting. The McDonald's customers enjoyed it when my order number of 069 came up. Was on a roll, so headed out into the very dark cold roads to get to Leighton Buzzard. Was questioning my choice about 20min after setting off with sudden sleepiness hitting hard, thinking that no one would be leaving the warm services in a rush and if anything went wrong I'd be screwed. Will not forget to take a space blanket again for any overnighter. Twilight came, felt better. Bit of a slog to get back to Ruislip. But did see the magic roundabout at Hemel Hempstead and then the little trains at ruislip lido.
