Van de site van Sustrans:
This area map shows the National Cycle Network and local routes in this area. It covers the Severn & Thames area of the South West region of England, including Bristol, Bath, Bath & North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire, North Wiltshire and Swindon.
This is a truly inspiring area to explore by bicycle. The Cotswolds, the UK's largest 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', the heights of the Mendip hills and the rolling fields of the Wiltshire countryside are just some of the places to offer spectacular scenery. The whole of the area is scattered with picturesque villages, welcoming country pubs, and places of historic interest. The Severn & Thames area is also home to the Bristol to Bath railway path, the very first Sustrans cycle route that guides you in perfect tranquillity between the two historic cities.
The pocket-sized colour map shows clearly mapped on-road and traffic-free paths, easy to read contours, and detailed inset maps for the major towns and cities as well as recommended linking routes connecting the NCN with quiet roads. The map also features 4 day rides with directions and a description of the area, highlighting key cycle routes, local history and places of interest.
