Evening All.

Visiting family in Bristol (first time there) from tomorrow til Sunday.

Taking the bike and plan on getting some decent cycling in.

Gonna have a crack at the Wiggle Mendips Sportive route which includes Cheddar Gorge (something I've been wanting to ride for a while).

Also going to ride the Bristol - Bath old railway path, sounds brilliant.

Anything else I should check out/routes I should ride while I'm there?

Your nouse would be much appreciated :D.

    When in Bath head out on the Two Tunnels path.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    There lots of riding around the Bristol area.

    The Avon Valley Loop. 85 miles that does a complete circular route around the outskirts of Bristol. If it's too far you can ride whatever section you want and then turn back into Bristol as you are never more then about 10 miles out.

    Also ride to Wales. Head for Olverston and Tockington then across the old Severn Bridge M48 (there's a bike path on either side) to Chepstow. There's a nice ride up to Shire Newton, New Church, Devauden. Then right at Cobblers Plain and down to Tintern. The Old Station Café do great lumps of bread pudding. Back to Chepstow on the Wye Valley road.
