Cycle at Leigh Woods, Bristol

A close-up view of a couple cycling on a sunny day

Leigh Woods, just outside Bristol, is a great escape from the city.

Follow our cycle route through diverse broadleaf woodlands on the plateau above the Avon Gorge and with views across the city. The Yer Tiz trail requires a mountain bike, but is suitable for relative novices. You’ll weave your way through the woodland and if you’re up for a challenge, the trail splits giving you the option of the more difficult red grade Gert Lush trail.
