What more can we say about the Bristol–Bath Railway Path? Yet it’s not just an invaluable commuter route; it’s also an enjoyable ride in itself, and the best way to start a day out in Bath. Continuing as National Cycle Network route 4, it takes you straight into the heart of the city past the famous Georgian terraces.
It’s 15 level miles to the centre of Bath, and you can of course get the train home if that’s enough for one day. Alternatively, the Avon Valley Railway (9 miles) and the riverside at Saltford (11 miles) are destinations for shorter rides.
