riding in the bath area.
The route posted looks like a goodun, browns folly (on the right) can also be linked up to go all the way to dundas aqueduct along some good trails, but do be polite to walkers as you shouldn’t really be riding there.. Also there are various trails dotted about starting at the top of lansdown. I assume it’s just XC you’re looking for?Posted 7 years agoTooTallMember
Just curious as to where you are looking for you to say
it looks abit thin on the ground for riding
A map of Bath shows it surrounded by hills and well served with bridleways – all good for riding bikes. Yes – AnalogueAndy is a user on here, but you have to be frightfully middle class to ride a bike in Bath.Posted 7 years agothekingofswedenSubscriber
With a name like onereallynicespeed old tootall is never going to go quietly 😉

Someone called 🙂
Sorry ron y.g.m – I’ve been out snowy riding
Was that you we passed agentdagnamit? We were a bit hung over.. too much champers at Aileens Christmas bash don’t you know TooTall 😉
There are indeed several groups riding out of Bath, contrary to TooTall’s opinion none are based on social class 🙂
As mentioned we meet 6.30 every Weds in Widcombe – over the footbridge behind the rail station, another group (the Others aka Moonlit Riders meet somewhere different each Weds at 7pm
This time of year BathAmphibs ride Sunday morning (9-9.30 bottom Bathwick Hill) plus Walcot VC does a cross / MTB ride out of Cadence at 8 on a Sat morning. Plus the Uni guys, most Weds afternoons.
I’ve uploaded a few of our routes to bikely:
Beware *cheeky content* of course you’ll need to dismount and ride those sections! Seriously though, I’d avoid Browns (above Bathford) on weekends during to walker and ranger content.
There’s no website but there is a Facebook thing:Posted 7 years agoAnalogueAndyMember

Glaring omission from this thread of course is the University CC if you happen to be a student there:
