tandem bike leaning against postboxCycling is certainly one of the best ways to get around, both in Frome and in the surrounding Somerset countryside. You can do everything from a challenging trail to a wander around Frome or villages in the area, while getting a bit of exercise in. Although the surrounding hills can be a bit of a challenge for some, Frome now has a local hire scheme for electric bicycles, which can help out on the tough bits. Find out more about hiring ebikes.
