A lovely mid summer ride around the Chew Valley starting and finishing in the heart of historic Bath to raise money for Bath Cats and Dogs Home.
From Bath, all routes follow the old Bristol to Bath railway line to Saltford with the 12 mile family route returning to Bath after a spot of lunch. The 33 and 50 mile routes wind down towards Chew Valley through pretty Somerset villages before both routes head north alongside Chew Valley Lake. The route then splits, with the 33 mile route returning east to Saltford via Chew Magna and Whitchurch.
Meanwhile the 50 mile route continues west circling the equally beautiful Blagdon Lake before the return east via Chew Valley Lake, Chew Magna and Saltford.
The ride finishes as it began in the relaxing greenery of Royal Victoria Park.
