Photos of Stage 2
Staines-Upon-Thames to Windsor & Eton Riverside Station (10.55 miles)
The stage starts at Staines-upon-Thames Pier. We follows the Thames Path over Staines Bridge, divert through The Hythe, then rejoin the Thames Path under Staines Bridge and follow to Runnymede. We then diverts past the memorials, through Englefield Green, Windsor Great Park and Windsor Town to finish at Windsor & Eton Riverside Train Station. The route is generally flat, but there are two big climbs up past the memorials at Runnymede and another up to the Copper Horse in Windsor Great Park.
