- Kemble -> roman road -> M4?
OK rode it on Saturday morning. Its fully ridable. Starts at Kemble airfield. Ends somewhere near the M4, where it turns into a road that continues it direct path into Batheaston.
Its mostly similar to a very wide canal toepath. Utterly straight, and virtually level just a few slight inclines. Surface for the most part a bit dull, the occasional rock. But there are one or two places where it mixes it up a bit, generally where it crosses a ford and the 4x4s have carved it up.
Only one more thing to add, it was utterly deserted. For nearly 40 miles I only came across one motor bike and one quad bike.
So to sum up, not really a mountain biking experience to write home about, but probably the most direct 40miles I've ever riden.

That's the Fosse Way, IIRC. which runs up from Bath northeast-ish towards Leicester, as the A429/B4455. I've walked and ridden bits around Malmesbury/Easton Grey/Tetbury, and it's indeed pretty dull, really. Flat, not a lot to look at, and not much in the way of interesting pubs or tea 'n' cake stops. Got very bored riding up there, stick to the Marlborough/Pewsey Downs now.Posted 8 years ago
