family cycling

Cycling’s one of the best ways to get around, and lets you do everything from a challenging trail to a wander around villages, while getting a bit of exercise in. The Somerset countryside is full of lovely scenery and interesting paths, and cycling is a great way to get out and about and explore Frome and the surrounding areas.

Frome lies on Route 24 of the National Cycling Network which runs from the historical city of Bath, all the way down to Hampshire.  Route 24 travels along the Colliers Way – a cycling and walking path between Dundas Aqueduct, Radstock and Frome which makes use of disused railway lines and quiet country lanes.

Just south of the town Route 24 links up with Route 25 which will take you through the Longleat Estate.

For those just wanting to explore the town but put off by the hills, you can hire an Ebike to take some of the strain.

For visitors wanting to explore further a field, The Open Road Experience, offer e-bikes and tandem e-bikes delivered to where you’re staying with a custom route so you can explore your surroundings, mechanical support and a host of optional extras, including guiding.
