The second in a series of day cycles around the Cotswolds/Wiltshire over the bank holiday weekend.  Make a weekend of it or come for the day.  Day 1 here, Day 3 here.

Join Will & Jon (no we aren't a couple) on an 80km(ish) cycle through Wiltshire/Cotswolds to a very nice fudge shop in the centre of Barrrth or as Will calls it "Bath".

The route starts in Sherston in Wiltshire, it then goes south through picturesque Castle Coombe, along quiet country roads and then a short stretch of the Kennet and Avon Canal into the heart of Bath.  We will stop here for fudge obviously and more importantly tea and cake.  If we are making good time, there will be an optional visit to the Roman Baths while Will eats more fudge/cake.  No trip to Bath is complete without a quick cycle along Gay Street, a loop around The Circus and a cycle past The Royal Crescent. 

From Bath, our route takes us through the Combe Down Tunnel, at an impressive 1,672 metres (just over one mile), it is the UK's longest cycling and walking tunnel.  We pop out the end and then along the River Avon to Bradford-on-Avon for a spot of lunch.  The final leg is north for a pint of cider back in Sherston.

Why are we starting in Sherston?  Truth be known it's where your leaders are staying for the bank holiday weekend.  There are a plenty of campsites and hotels in the surrounding area.
