Every day!! Nice ride along the B4040 to Malmesbury especially at this time of year. Early morning rides to work which makes getting to work enjoyable – so much so, I actually look forward to the alarm at 5:50am!!

Then onto the M4 at junction 17, down to junction 18, then along the A36 into Bath itself. This is a nice section of the journey in general as it is up and over the downs. Into Bath, right to the centre close to the bus and train station, onto Lower Bristol Road.

The route home is via Lansdown road and Wick. This avoids the queue on the London road and quite often the long queue on the A36 too.

That’s a top tip for anyone visiting Bath – use the park and ride at Lansdown road. Parking in Bath is crazily expensive; the roads can be challenging to get round, and the buses can be very aggressive too!

Lansdown was a site of a Civil war battle – just in case you were interested!

Then the route home is the reverse of the way in. Could vary it a little, so rather than using the M4, I could go straight over at J18, following signs to Tetbury and back that way. Loads of choices!

Trip can be 35 miles in; and around 40 miles home. Time can vary greatly too – in a car it can take up to 2 hours to get home if there has been an incident on the roads.
