Cycling in Slough

Slough is an ideal area in which to cycle as it is a compact, densely built up area only 7 miles east to west and approximately 3 miles north to south. It is relatively flat, thereby making cycling a viable alternative to the private car for numerous journeys, including shopping, work, and school trips.
