Two Tunnels Cycle Path

Back to Blog


Bath Two Tunnels cycle route opened in April 2013 and incorporates parts of the Kennet & Avon Cycle Route and the Colliers Way to create a fantastic 13-mile walking and cycling link between central Bath, Midford, Monkton Combe and beyond. The route takes you from the centre of historic Bath using National Route 244, National Route 24 and National Route 4, through two tunnels: the Devonshire Tunnel at Bloomfield and the Combe Down Tunnel at Combe Down, and over the spectacular Tucking Mill Viaduct and past the Dundas Aqueduct on the Kennet & Avon Canal, until you are back alongside the River Avon, closely following it back into Bath. You can start this circular route at any access points along the circuit, though recommended start points are either Bath Spa station or Oldfield Park station. Both are a short ride from the route, which can ridden in either direction. The route conveniently takes you past Wheelwrights Arms in Monkton Combe, or for a slight detour along National Route 24, the Hope and Anchor in Midford if you want to stop for a pub lunch.
