route of old disused railway now walking and cycle path great things to see along the way, some cyclists think they own the path, and should stick to road racing especially when you have dogs to walk with, plenty of places to stop for refreshments

We have cycled this route many times now, although this time we found the Railway Inn, wow, what a find! Shute Shelve is an isolated car park and on our return after cycling to Yatton, there were a few bikers smoking drugs. Didn't feel threatened,...More

I have walked various sections of the Strawberry Line but most often the section from Yatton to Sandford. The route is generally tidy and well maintained, this section is mostly level. Along the way it is interesting to see the change of seasons. In the...More
