Getting on a bike is a great way to feel healthy in body and mind. It's a form of transport so can be used to get around which can save you money and help the environment.
Cycling is also a great low impact activity so it is easier on your joints than high impact aerobic exercise.
Bath and North East Somerset is very fortunate to have hosted a number of major cycling events, including the Tour of Britain stage 5 start in 2014 and the stage 5 finish in 2016. We are also home to a superb 1.5km purpose built cycle circuit at Odd Down Sports Ground. This facility is perfect for complete beginners and racers, alike. To complement the local buzz around cycling and our facilities, there are a number of cycle routes throughout the area which take in various scenic views within Bath city centre and out across the surrounding countryside. There are also plenty of cycling clubs and groups to get involved with.
