We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Walked this route, Keynsham to Bath, with an alternative start to take advantage of walking along the Chew and Avon rivers , the Bitton - Bath railway Sustain cycle route and nearby Kelston Road Top.
I will add the alternative start as KeyBat three as a more scenic route out of Keynsham avoiding the suburban issues raised in the first review.
Would thoroughly recommend this route (with alts).
(However, on the river path alt there are a few stile gates that have a bar about 250mm above the ground, presumably to stop cycling, but would unfortunately prevent wheeled access).

This route had potential, with a lovely walk through the Avon valley, but unfortunately is undone by a pair of prohibitive obstacles. The first is a work site which obstructs the footpath (ST 66597 67948), not to be completed until summer 2022. The second is that the route goes through a primary school (ST 66280 67903) which is understandably usually inaccessible to pedestrians. Following the route, I had to double back twice, so unfortunately cannot recommend the route in its present form. I will upload a new suggestion which avoids these obstacles.
