The Hispanic-sounding Malago Greenway is actually named after the tributary of the Avon that rises just south of Bristol. (The river is built over downstream of Bedminster, so hard to trace.) Much of the route is traffic-free, with a new cycle path along Hartcliffe Way providing a safe alternative to this busy road. It’s reasonably direct, too, and no hillier than it needs to be: the route falls slowly and steadily from Hartcliffe. You arrive in the city centre at Prince Street Bridge having crossed the Avon on Gaol Ferry Bridge.
