This is my favourite ride. Lots of nice smooth tarmac, gentle gradients, and no cars. The Bristol to Bath cycle path (also known as the Bath to Bristol Cycle Path) has become something of a tourist attraction. I have met riders from as far away as Australia and Columbia here. Although South Gloucestershire Council have recently 'enhanced the environment' by building a new ring road through it! It's still not a bad ride (except for one small barely perceptible gradient), a few more blind corners, a couple of extra bridges over the ring road and of course a couple of short stretches that run along side the ring road.
