The route heads out along the banks of the Floating Harbour to pick up the River Avon Trail. We take a very leisurely pace through the grassy Netham Park before enjoying city views from the open space of Avonview Cemetery. Following the Wesley Way we meander through Magpie Bottom and finally emerge from this wooded part of Hanham to drop down to the banks of the Avon. We cross the river to delve into St Annes Wood to follow the Brislington Brook through the glades of Nightingale Valley before emerging near Victory Park. The ride then passes through Stockwood Nature Reserve before stopping at Mario’s Café and we finally head back to central Bristol down the old railway path of the Whitchurch Way.
