AVON CYCLEWAY PDF

The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned. When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground. Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

Simon Greenacre discovers the mixed delights of the Avon Valley Cycleway — rural beauty mixed with industry. I can picture my lights in there, resting on the edge of a desk, neglected for the day. I know that a long ride is rarely that easy, but my relaxed attitude and complete unwillingness to prepare is too irresistible. Leaving from Bath, we follow the Sustrans railway path to Saltford, where we pick up the Avon Cycleway, heading clockwise.

We make good progress for the first hour, heading south of Bath and Bristol, and before we know it, our surroundings take on a more rural flavour. Very pleasant. As I ride under one of its giant arches, I get the sense of being in a cathedral as its weathered brickwork towers over me.

Chris gets a puncture near Portishead and I thinkthat at Pensford I should have stopped and made an offering to the gods of cycling; left an energy gel under the viaduct or something. He fixes it swiftly, but precisely six minutes and 37 seconds later gets another. This time his front tyre is full of glass. The thought occurs for the first time that we might not make it back home before the light has gone.

We seem to be constantly turning left and right, going down little stretches of poorly surfaced road or cyclepath. The guy behind the wheel stops in the middle of the road, looking bewildered at how this impasse might be broken. Reversing is obviously too exotic a prospect for him, so we squeeze down one side with our faces in the hedge. Chris gets through easily but my front wheel slips on some mud and I fall into the side of the van with my shoulder.

As I ride away, I hear a heated pirate voice carrying towards me, so I shout an apology back while turning the cranks a little faster. As we head north, for a while a pretty little canal meanders its way alongside us. The flora and fauna are exquisite — with the water boasting a wide range of algae, and a large shoal of not-very-rare-in-these-parts Upside Down Fosters Can fish, which bob playfully among the plastic bags.

The factories stick out of the ground like giant grey slabs, and the din of the M5, M4 and M48 all take turns providing the soundtrack before we head east again towards Thornbury.

North of Bristol, the pretty town of Thornbury signals the start of a better rhythm, and we manage to cover a decent amount of ground over some faster roads as we head east, then eventually south. Around this point, fuelled by an increasing sense of worry, we get our heads down and make decent progress. Near Yate we barrel down a fast, sweeping country lane only to meet a huge tractor and trailer in the road. I squeeze my levers hard as I point the front of the bike left, aiming for the gap between the huge tyre and the grass verge.

After getting lost again just north of the M4, we eventually manage to find our way back to the Sustrans railway path we left earlier in the morning.

At my front door, my Garmin reads miles, and just over ft of climbing. I bring my bike indoors, back into the spare room, where my lights sit smugly on the table. Bath Spa, Bristol Temple Meads www. Thornbury has more food options including three pubs: the Wheatsheaf Inn , the Swan and the White Lion. Bristol and Bath have everything from youth hostels to five-star hotels.
