Bike Bath 2022 Routes 

All routes indicative, pending closer scrutiny and local authority approval

All three routes start and finish within the historic surroundings of the Bath Rec and set off north east towards Corsham, famous for Peacocks and Poldark and on to the pretty village of Biddlestone. The Short (26 mile) Route then loops back towards Bath past Colerne Airfield and down the Bannerdown descent (part of the ancient Fosse Way), through Bathampton and back to the Rec.

The Medium (50 mile) Route heads north at the route split just past Biddlestone, and on to Action Turville where the feedstation is located at the Fox & Hounds pub around 22 miles in. You then continue into the Historic Cotswolds through picturesque villages Sherstone and Badminton. The route returns back through Acton Turville for a second go at the feed station and then you ride back towardsBath picking up the short route at the top of the Bannerdown descent.

For the Long (75 mile) Route you have another split at Sherston where instead of heading West you continue North past Shipton Moyne and through Tetbury, which is itself an area of outstanding natural beauty and the second largest town in the Cotswolds. From Tetbury you have a long climb up to Cotswold Edge Golf Club before a long descent through Wotton-Under-Edge before meeting up with the Medium Route just north of Little Badminton.
