The Newent Loop is a 28 mile on road cycling route to the north of Newent on quiet roads and lanes through the Gloucestershire countryside. There are two shorter routes of 19 miles each. All three routes are fully signed and can be combined in various ways and ridden in any direction.

The routes have been assessed by the Gloucestershire Road Safety Audit Team who recommend that the routes are safer when followed in an anti-clockwise direction. The lanes are shared with other vehicles so please wear brightly coloured clothing and use your lights under murky conditions. Always wear a helmet!
