Grab your bike and get ready to pedal through the longest cycle tunnel in Europe.
This route has been described by The Independent as "One of the most scenically varied and sightseeing-rich couple of hours of cycling anywhere in Britain." And you’ll see why as you take in the Kennet and Avon Canal towpath, the spectacular Grade I listed Dundas Aqueduct, the sublime elegance of the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath and over one incredible mile of the Combe Down Tunnel.
This is a very special day out on your bike. Dating back in the 1870s, the old railway tunnels were left unused until they re-opened in 2013. Now well lit, smoothly surfaced and wide enough for cyclists and pedestrians you will be able to explore an exciting subterranean part of this popular 13-mile circuit. Passing through the tunnel you’ll also experience an astonishing an audio-visual art instillation called Passage and created by United Visual Artists.
