    You can’t help but to be in awe of this beautiful structure. Bike lanes filter you around the sides of the toll barriers but keep an eye on cars going through as you rejoin the road.

    The easiest way in and out of Bristol by bike. Usually quiet and leads straight to Ashton court and some nice roads out of Bristol. Can be used to head to the Mendips or over towards Weston Super Mare and Clevedon.

    If you’re visiting Bristol then you HAVE to go over the bridge at some point. Absolutely stunning views and a masterpiece in industrial engineering.

    At the moment there are roadworks on the Clifton side so be careful. Make sure to use the bike paths around the barriers.

    You get a better experience walking across instead of cycling.

    Great sprint when it's not too busy...or windy!

    Opened in 1864, and having taken 33 years to build, Clifton Suspension Bridge remains a defining feature of Bristol, described by its creator, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, as his first child, his darling. You'll want to keep your head up if you suffer from vertigo...
