    The Clifton Suspension Bridge has been an iconic symbol of Bristol for more than 150 years. The Grade I-listed structure spans the mighty Avon Gorge, linking the city of Bristol to North Somerset. It attracts visitors from all over the world.

    In 1829, a competition was launched to find a suitable design for a bridge to cross the Avon Gorge. When a design could not be found, a second competition was launched and the winner was Isambard Kingdom Brunel, aged 23, who was thus appointed as Project Engineer. The bridge eventually opened in 1864. Sadly, Brunel died in 1859 and never saw the bridge completed. For more information, visit:

    Simply, the most gorgeous way to either leave or return to the city by bike. Cheers 'en, Brunel.
