Event Information

description:

Exit Bristol using the Whitchurch Way then; continue tracing the former Bristol & North Somerset Railway into The Mendips and its old mining towns. Continue south through the rolling East Somerset hills and dip into Dorset. You’ve missed the connection to Easton on the Bill so divert across Blackmore Vale; Shaftesbury and the cobbles of Gold Hill await! Edge the West Wiltshire Downs and pass through Longleat to Frome and the southern end of The Cotswolds. Enjoy the 2 Tunnels, part of the old Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway, before popping out in Bath and following the former Midlands Railway shared path back into Bristol to a warm welcome in Easton.

details:

Hot drinks, breakfast and hot food at finish included.

There are a couple of width restrictions early on along the Whitchurch Way which aren’t suitable for trikes and tandems, a suggested alternative will be provided.

On street parking locally, you’ll be updated before the event.
