This route is mainly on pavements beside busy mains roads between Reading and Pangbourne. The section from Pangbourne to Goring is quiet and scenic as it follows the Thames Path. Unless you need a quick and mainly paved route I would use Gorrea 2 that mostly follows the Thames Path between Goring and Reading.

While possibly the most direct route, it's not the most pleasant walking from Pangbourne to Reading. Most of this section is pavements that run along main roads with one section along a main road with high speed vehicles.
