This route is a bit off road, brideway and muddy roads, hybrid bike needed as a minimum. Once leaving Melksham on Forest Road, then heading on bridleway/track through the lovely Spy Park, and then across the top near Bowdon, but then kinking right and a longer loop down to Reybridge. Here there is a long down hill, which going the other way would be a killer. Indeed, this is probably the hilliest local route. Into Corsham for a coffee before the usual route back to Lacock and Melksham
