Long-distance cycle map for Bath to Bournemouth bike route using NCN 24 and 25

The West Country’s very own 'Race to the Sun' offers an extremely pleasant meander through the West Country to Bournemouth on the South Coast. Despite the surrounding chalk downland, the route largely avoids the higher ground, making this an enjoyable long-distance ride that won't tax your climbing legs too much.

The UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath provides the spectacular backdrop to this ride’s start. Your departure from the city is almost entirely traffic-free and takes in the Combe Down Tunnel, the UK’s longest cycle and walking tunnel. You emerge blinking into a gently-rolling Somerset before taking in the Wiltshire and Dorset landscape. The route passes through small towns such as Radstock, Frome, Gillingham and Blandford until you reach the busier towns of Poole and Bournemouth.

The full-colour map based on Ordnance Survey data shows clearly mapped cycle routes on traffic-free paths, quiet lanes and roads, with easy-to-read contours, route profiles and mile markers. Also features detailed inset maps for the major towns and cities, tourist info and cycle shop and hire information, and other local routes.
