Industrial Revolutions

Ride Type: Light gravel/Road
Distance: 89.8km
Elevation: 979m

Starting and finishing at the Bath Railway station, this route takes on the National cycleways, abandoned railways and canals of the industrial revolution from Bath towards Bristol and up to the market town of Chipping Sodbury. Here there are a selection of cafes perfect for a mid-ride stop.

The route continues through Little Badminton to Castle Combe. This idyllic village appeared in the film Doctor Dolittle, an episode of Agatha Christie's Poirot and Steven Spielberg's production of War Horse.

Whilst most of the route is perfectly ridable on a road bike, the softer tyres of a gravel bike will make the canal sections much more enjoyable.
