On Yer Bike: New Development Close to Reading’s Best Cycle Routes


With 8.5 million people in England reporting to cycle more than once a week, two-wheeled travelling is becoming increasingly popular across the country.


Perfect for bike enthusiasts, L&Q at Huntley Wharf in Reading is a brand-new cycle-friendly development offering cycle storage and access to some excellent cycle routes. A short bike ride away from some of the area’s top sights, the development is well-catered for when it comes to getting around on two wheels.

Situated on the banks of the River Kennet, L&Q at Huntley Wharf is a collection of one- and two- bedroom Shared Ownership apartments, which form part of a new urban district. At the heart of the development, a central riverside plaza will be home to an array of new amenities, including a local store, nursery and gym, as well as beautifully landscaped podium gardens which are already open. Homes are ready to move into now, and come complete with modern interiors and most homes benefit from private outside space.
