A Forgotten Landscape is a place to savour and shouldn’t be visited in a hurry. Cycling is one of the best ways to experience the beauty of the Lower Severn Vale Levels at a pace that suits you. As a bonus, much of the landscape is very flat!

Whether you are a keen cyclist or just looking for a family day out there are lots of wonderful cycle trails for you to explore including on and off road, traffic-free, and everyday commuter routes.

Highlights include exploring the peaceful byways around Oldbury and Littleton, and crossing the Severn Bridge into Wales.

Here are some of our favourite local cycle routes:

Bristol to Chepstow
Covering 25 miles and bridging nations this is definitely a journey that all keen cyclists in the south west should take.

Bristol to Thornbury
From the River Avon in Bristol, this route follows the towpath before heading along National Cycle Network Route 4 to Thornbury.

Here are some of our favourite national cycle routes:

National Route 41
This long distance route winds through A Forgotten Landscape, taking you from the tranquility of the Severn, over the Wiltshire downs and into the Thames Valley.

National Route 4
Stretching from London in the east to Fishguard on the west coast of Wales, this long distance route passes through Bristol and over the Severn Bridge.
