This is a perfect route for inexperienced cyclists looking to do a long distance route. From West to East it follows the famous Bristol and Bath Railway Path before joining the tranquil Kennet & Avon Canal and is pretty much entirely flat and the way to Reading.

There is an on-road section in the middle but the roads are very quiet. Not suitable for some race road bikes due to slightly rough surfaces in places.
