Cycle Steps
Very easy to ride cycle path between Bath and Bristol. Mostly paved, with some areas of smooth cycle track, following an old railway line. No cars to worry about.

Leaving Bath, after around 3 miles you meet the railway line with steam-trains running along it. Around 2 miles on, you cross the line at the station (not a bad place for a cup of tea). After crossing the line you can continue folowing the path to the left, behind the car-park. You cross back over the railway line a little further on, and the railway line ends after another mile.

Over the following 2 miles there are a couple of road-crossings (with traffic lights). You then come to an uphill climb to cross the bridge over the main road. In a few hundred meters, you cross a second bridge over the road again.

Very pleasant route, perfect for sunny afternoons.

Very easy route, very flat and a little bumpy, and only 13 and a half miles, certainly not 43

I cycle this route to and from work. It's 16/16.5 miles from the centre of Bath to the centre of Bristol. The sections near Saltford and Warmley and pretty and picturesque - not great when you get closer to Bristol though. Takes about an hour (an hour and a half if you're taking it easy). Gets busy during commuter times!
