|Varied route passing through a number of towns as well as high downland with great views. A long day one-way, or for a shorter trip the Wantage-Devizes section is particularly good.
Some big roads especially between Devizes and Melksham but in the main quiet stuff. Big hill just outside Wantage and another out of Bradford-on Avon. You may want to pick up the canal path for the last stretch into Bath - very pretty and not too bumpy.
|Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?|
|Abingdon, Wantage, Lambourn, Marlborough, Devizes, Bradford-on-Avon all have their charms and various shops/pubs/eateries etc.
Look out for the White Horse on the hill above Alton Priors.
Passes near the Ridgeway path and various canals.

|Great route, thanks. However, it's 80 miles not 70 if you follow the roads exactly - this one is mapped pretty roughly on here. Be wary if cycling east to west, you're likely to be against the wind, doh! And it ends with a very stiff climb into Bath to polish you off.|
