New job means I will be visiting Bristol a fair bit (when restrictions finally ease). Tempted to see if I might want to move to the city or somewhere within cycling/commuting distance. Does anyone have any suggestions for places to ride, visit etc in Bristol to make the most out of my time in a few days? I'll get the chance do some exploring of cycle routes, get a feel for areas I might want to live (i..e non-car dominated).
I'd recommend the following to give you feels for rides in each compass direction:
1) Take the Bristol to Bath bike path out through the two tunnels then loop back through Radstock > Chew Valley
2) North out into the relative flat lanes around Yate and Wootton under Edge, back down the Severn through Hill / Rockhampton
3) Mendip loop going up Burrington Coomb and Cheddar Gorge
4) Over the bridge into Wales for some Forest of Dean gravel
Happy to share detailed routes if any of that is of interest.
