Missed Connection

165km cycling event starting from Easton, Bristol. Controls at Charlton Horethorne and Shaftesbury, plus 3 information controls.

Head to the coast... Fiddlesticks you've missed your connection! Head to Gold Hill in Shaftesbury before returning through Longleat Estate. #wills_hills & views, 3 different railway paths include.

Hot drinks, breakfast and dinner included. ============================================================= Exit Bristol using the Whitchurch Way then continue tracing the former Bristol & North Somerset Railway into The Mendips and its old mining towns. Continue south through the rolling East Somerset hills and dip into Dorset. You've missed the connection to Easton on the Bill so divert across Blackmore Vale to Shaftesbury and the cobbles of Gold Hill! Edge the West Wiltshire Downs and pass through Longleat to Frome and the southern end of The Cotswolds. Enjoy the 2 Tunnels, part of the old Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway, before popping out in Bath and following the former Midlands Railway shared path back into Bristol to a warm welcome in Easton. ============================================================= There are a couple of width restrictions early on along the Whitchurch Way which aren't suitable for trikes and tandems, a suggested alternative will be provided.
