Route: This mid-level route heads out of the UWE grounds using a safe pedestrian crossing and then onto a cycle track to wind its way through Bradley Stoke out into the South Gloucestershire countryside.
Following quiet roads riders will pass through some lovely villages before dropping down in to Tockington. Here the route heads towards the old Severn Crossing Bridge, across the magnificent bridge and up past Chepstow, before climbing up the West side of the Wye Valley on beautifully scenic roads, passing through the villages of Itton, Devauden and Trelleck.
The ride will then take you back through St Arvans, Chepstow and back over the Severn Bridge to follow the same roads back to UWE.
