Sustrans' Bath to Bournemouth map is the official cycle route map for the 85-mile (137km) ride from Bath to Bournemouth along National Routes 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.

We are improving the National Cycle Network to make it more accessible for everyone. As part of our Paths for Everyone vision, some sections of the Network have been removed or reclassified. There may be sections within these maps that are no longer part of the Network. These sections are likely to be on busier roads and will suit more experienced cyclists.
