This 25-mile loop features quite a bit of bike path and road, and the off-road stuff isn’t that technical, so it’s ideal for a CX bike, or a racey mountain bike.
Starting with the Pill Path and the Gordano Valley, the first bit of proper off-road comes with a descent from Cadbury Camp Lane to Tickenham. Then there’s a bit of road hacking over to Brockley Combe, a sudden technical climb that’s nigh-on uncleanable, and a fun descent through Bourton Combe. At this point you can either spin back along the road via Long Ashton, or climb up and finish with a bit of the Ashton Court trails.
