|This is a road route, on a mix of A, B, urban and country roads, that encounters many of the great hills around Bath, while avoiding most of the traffic. (Although it is all on tarmac, be aware that the quality does vary)

|Great route! Keeps nicely away from the more urban areas and passes through some stunning villages. Some fairly steep climbs but nothing too long.|
