Did the Two Tunnels Circuit with my wife earlier this week. Took around 4 hours which included plenty of stops for photos and lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of the tunnels and it was refreshingly cool on such a warm day! The ride along the...More

I last visited the tunnels in 1972 before the path was official, and was hugely looking forward to walking the section from Bear Flat again. Sadly the weather was against us, it was freezing in the tunnels, particularly the longer one, and quite honestly we...More

We did the circular cycle ride, starting from Bathampton going clockwise. The route is beautiful along the canal and aqueduct. The tunnels are really good fun - they are a little dark so do use lights. The route back through Bath couldn't be simpler. Plenty...More

Very long main tunnel with adequate lighting, the lights on one wall of the shorter tunnel were out (there were warning signs of reduced lighting at the entrance) which did make it quite tricky. There is actually a third tunnel (very short) just before Midford...More

I'd wanted to go through the tunnels ever since Sustrans opened them up and we walked as we were in Combe Down without Bikes. I remember watching the puffs of smoke/steam rising from the cutting between the two tunnels as a young lad from the...More

A real hidden gem. A fabulous bike ride. Climbing steadily out of Bath up to the tunnels. A great surface , lighting and piped music. It is so different and a memory of a lifetime

A quite wonderful cycle ride and if you are in Bath you absolutely have to do this, or if in Bristol cycle the Bristol to Bath route and do this when you are almost at the end..superb and not like anything I have cycled before.

We set off one Saturday to look for the tunnels. I'm not really sure what we expected but we certainly didn't expect to be walking around Bath city centre and sleeping rough in our search. After several weeks we finally found the foot path to...More
