Bristol to Bath Cycle Path

About

The Bristol and Bath Railway Path is a 13 mile off road route between the cities of Bristol and Bath. The path is open to walkers and cyclists and access is provided for disabled users. The Path is many things to many people - an integral commuting route, an attractive leisure path and an important wildlife corridor.

The path was constructed on the bed of the former Midland Railway by cycling charity Sustrans between 1979 and 1986. The first stretch was between Bath and Bitton where the campaign group, Cyclebag obtained planning permission to create the 2m wide dust track. The route then developed westwards with Bristol being the last section. This was tarmaced from the outset.

Today, the path is a 3m wide tarmaced surface from end to end and an attractive leisure and commuting route. You can discover some fascinating history, visit intriguing places nearby, connect to other walks and trails and refresh yourself at several points along the way.
