|Part of the National Cycle Route No.33 has been opened that would avoid the A370 and passes through peacful farmland. When you leave Nailsea along 'Backwell Bow' just before you pass under the railway bridge you will see the cycle route on your left. This travels alongside the railway. After about a mile you cross over 'Station Rd.' (B3129) and then soon after you enter a small new housing estate, throgh you follow the blue cycleway signs (keep going right) past thre Magistrates Court on your right, and up to the main road (B3130) and you are back on the ride as discribed.|
