Bristol & Bath Railway Cycle Path

The Bristol & Bath Railway Path provides a traffic free link between the historic cities of Bath and Bristol. The pathway which is 13 miles long provides cyclists and pedestrians of all abilities with an accessible leisure facility.

The path starts at the centre of Bristol and heads northwards through South Gloucestershire passing through Mangotsfield, Warmley, Bitton and Saltford before reaching the centre of Bath.

The Cycle path provides the perfect place for a relaxing day and makes an ideal location for families looking for a safe environment for their children to benefit from the fresh air and exercise that comes with cycling.

Scattered along the route are a number of sculptures (look out for the fish stood on its nose) and places of interest such as the working steam engines you can find at Bitton Train Station. Railway enthusiasts should keep an eye out for bridges and footbridges which give clues as to the history of the path as a working railroad.

There are a number of access points along the path but should you decided to cycle the full 13 miles then why not consider stopping of Saltford for an enjoyable pub lunch.
