Cycling

Its rolling hills and flat plains make Somerset a popular destination for cyclists whether they are mountain bikers or more relaxed riders. As the seventh largest county with a distinctly rural character, it offers the chance to get off the well-ridden track and discover some of Somerset’s secrets. You can pedal along disused railway lines, through nature reserves and to the top of spell-binding viewpoints.

There are family routes, circular routes, off road routes and mountain bike routes. There are gentle meanders on the wide open wetlands of the Somerset Levels and there are challenging climbs in the Blackdown, Mendip and Quantock Hills – all designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are tracks through woodlands and across the heaths of Exmoor National Park.

Some of the more notable routes are the South Somerset Cycle Route; the Stop Line Way, which follows the line of the World War Two Stop Line; Colliers Way and the Strawberry Line.
