Specific dangers on this section:
11 miles in – Putney Bridge requires a shift over two lanes to get in a bike box in a busy road. If you can’t do it easily just cross at the lights.
40 miles in – Windsor A road is busy, with ½ mile of no cycle lane, be careful but in the end we reach an off-road shared path all the way into Windsor.
