Cycling & Cycle Routes in Wiltshire

Cycling in Wiltshire's peaceful, glorious countryside will show you rural England at its very best.

The Wiltshire Cycleway threads its way through Wiltshire along quiet country lanes and passes many of the county's most attractive places to visit.

The 160 mile cycle route is supplemented by a network of shorter loops offering a wide choice of distance and terrain.

A great off-road cycling route is to follow along the Kennet & Avon Canal tow path.

On this route you will pass the Crofton Beam Engines, Caen Hill lock, Pewsey Wharf and the historic towns of Bradford on Avon and Devizes.
