Cheddar Gore cycling route

A route with plenty of elevation as you head out through the "sticks" to Cheddar Gorge.

Starting off at Odd Down with fresh legs, head east and start ticking off the villages. Compton Dando, Stanton Wick and Bishop Sutton fly past as you start to climb on your way out of West Harptree, winding towards Cheddar. It's downhill to coffee and cake once you've conquered the rise from Churchill to Shipham.

With (relatively) fresh legs after your coffee stop at Rockface, the road heads up through the breathtaking Cheddar Gorge, before heading back towards Bath through the fantastically named Farrington Gurney.

Save a bit in the legs for the final push into Bath, as you head up to the Combe Cycle tunnel, the longest Cycling Tunnel in Britain,

Unclip and relax as you reach your destination - the fantastic Colonna and Smalls Coffee Shop on Queens Square. Fancy something stronger? Wheel your bikes over the cobbled roads to the Raven for a more traditional feel to your post-ride tipple.
