- Any Bath/Devizes locals in – Kennet & Avon on a bank holiday
Was thinking of riding to the in-laws – first half is ridgeway, the second half is Kennet and Avon tow path.Posted 3 years ago
I’ve done it before but only on a week day and there’s plenty of space etc, is it a bad idea on a bank holiday weekend, does it usually get rammed at weekends?
Which bit? Bath to Bradford on Avon is pretty good although you’ll obviously get parents with kids, parents with dogs, parents with kids and dogs, parents with kids on bikes, parents with dogs on bikes, well, it does feel like that. If it’s Bradford on Avon eat at the Lock Inn, have an all day breakfast and all will be good with the world. If it’s Devizes to BOA, it’s a bit narrow in place but less used, both bits are OK……..Posted 3 years ago
The run into bath is busy every sunny weekend. It’s fine as long as you don’t mind a bit of stop start. It is a national cycle route, but be considerate. A bell might be useful. If it is wet then fit mud guards. Trust me on the mud guards.Posted 3 years ago
Cheers both, it would be Devizes to Bathampton.Posted 3 years ago
Probably later in the afternoon by the time i get there so sounds like it’s still worth a shot.
It’ll be fine. It was bone dry on Tuesday…..Posted 3 years ago

Thanks dovebiker, could be pretty busy around Devizes then, but i should miss that.Posted 3 years ago
BoA to Bath is rammed on weekend afternoons. Be prepared for a slow ride. Dog walkers with headphones and long dog-leads are a speciality.Posted 3 years ago
Devises – Westminster will not be a problem if you join canal at top of Caen Hill instead of further east.
I have done this trip on sunny weekends. It is not as bad as others make out, for sure busy in town centres but just be patient and use the bell a lot and you’ll be fine.Posted 3 years ago
