Kennet and Avon canal


Follow the historic Kennet and Avon Canal through spectacular scenery from Reading to Bath for 132km (82 miles), and/or continue on to Bristol, a further 21km (13 mile) along the popular Bristol and Bath Railway path.

The ride is mostly gravel tracks and quiet roads, and following the waterside it offers a flat, easy going route, with plenty of pubs along the route.

There are a couple of impressive limestone aqueducts, (restored) Claverton Pumping Station and Caen Hill Locks with its 29 locks!
