Cyclists clear the way

A group of cyclists will set about clearing a section of the Bath to Bristol path along the river. The path has been gradually invaded by undergrowth and the usable part is now significantly narrower than the path itself.

The work party will be Saturday 1 Feb at 13.30, meet on the Bath to Bristol Path where the Two Tunnels path meets it – the green bridge over the river.

Lighting problem in Devonshire tunnel

23 Dec 2013

As some may already have discovered, the lighting in Devonshire Tunnel is intermittently failing. This appears to be linked to wet weather, which may be causing a fuse to be tripped out in the main control box.

Volunteer Rangers will do their best to minimize disruption by resetting the tripped fuse as and when time/commitments allow, but there is no guarantee that you will not find the lights out when you arrive at the tunnel.

So, if you plan to make a visit, it is suggested you take a light/torch and exercise caution as you pass through.

Ghost bike

Saturday 30th Nov, 10am

Members of CycleBath are helping organise a Respect Ride for Jake Gilmore, the 19-year-old who died as the result of a collision on Midland Bridge Road at 9.30pm on Saturday night, the 16th November as he cycled home.

We feel that many people, especially cyclists, may want to come together to share their grief at this sad loss to our community.

CycleBath – a new direction for 2013


Our key aim is "to get more people cycling in Bath".

We are turning CycleBath into an umbrella membership organisation, website and social network that defines itself as "All things cycling in Bath" and "Talking about cycling in Bath". Googling "Cycling" and "Bath" brings the CycleBath website as one of the top sites, so we want to build on this to make CycleBath the natural focus for residents in and visitors to Bath find out information, meet other cyclists and get cycling.
