The official cycle route map for the 167-mile (269km) ride from Bristol Temple Meads train station to the Brunel Museum in London.
This linear map shows the Great Western Way route and immediate surrounding area. 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.
This map also features detailed inset maps for the major towns and cities, tourist info and cycle shop and hire information, and other local routes.
This ride takes its name from Brunel’s famous railway connecting the capital with the West Country. National Route 4 forms an unbroken link between the cities of London and Bristol. Despite its length, the route is almost entirely flat, following canals, rivers and vales.
The Bristol to London ride initially follows the Bristol & Bath Railway Path, which was the first section of traffic-free shared-use path ever built by Sustrans. From Bath, Route 4 uses the towpath of the Kennet & Avon Canal as far as Devizes.
After Devizes in the heart of Wiltshire, you leave the canal and follow quiet lanes through numerous villages in the Vale of Pewsey to the outskirts of Newbury. From there you follow the course of the River Kennet to Reading where it joins the Thames. Then it’s the Thames Valley Cycle Route to central London and Brunel Museum.
