We start the city tour from our base at the bike shop in Green Park Station, a victorian architectural gem hidden away to most visitors. Its traffic free all the way, as we start of in leafy Green Park cycling past some lovely Georgian townhouses down to the river. The next landmark is beautiful Norfolk Crescent seldom visited by tourists, but a real beauty. Our route ambles on into Victoria Park, with stunning views of the world famous Crescent which you have a chance to cycle in front of on its rather bumpy cobblestones! We head to The Circus, a complete circle of 6 storey Georgian town houses which is stunning. We cross the city down to Sydney Gardens which is a breath of fresh air after the noise and crowds in the town. Here we join the canal and river, for hidden views of Bath. The route then heads to the famous Abbey and back on the river path to Green Park.
The route follows the well worn path of many a cycle hire customer, but with the added attraction of input from your guide and no worries about getting lost. We start at our base at the bike shop in Green Park Station, a victorian architectural gem hidden away to most visitors. Its traffic free all the way, as we start of in leafy Green Park cycling past some lovely Georgian townhouses down to the river. Here we head to the start of the old canal by following the traffic free riverpath to its start (or finish) in the delightful Widecombe village high street. The canal takes us all the way to Dundas Aqueduct where the route leaves the canal and heads to the pretty Cotswold stone village of Monkton Combe. Shortly after we hit the only short hill only 300 yards long before joining the old railway route, through the spectacular engineering feat of Devonshire tunnel at 1.6 miles long. Fully lit with LED lights and music in the middle. Your legs will thank you as after the second tunnel the route is largely downhill back to the river path where its a short ride back to Green Park Station.
Custom E-Bike Tours:
This is totally up to you, with plenty of advice from us of course. You could explore the extremely picturesque Cotswold Stone village of Wellow and its beautifully peaceful river valley with a stunning Bronze age burial chamber at Stoney Littleton that you can actually enter! Alternatively we could ride to Iford Manor with its historic grade 1 listed gardens. If you prefer to see more of Bath, you could ride Ebikes and we can explore up close the Georgian Crescents that so characterise the architectural style of Bath. A visit to Prior Park National Trust gardens is also a great way to see stunning British gardens and a quaint old lane with historic homes along it.
