100k circular route, starting and and ending at Uphill on the Brean Down Way.
The route takes in the climb of Burrington Combe, the village of Priddy, the East Somerset Railway at Cranmore, Glastonbury, the Ham Wall and Shapwick Heath nature reserves, and the village of Mark.
Nearly all the climbing is loaded into the first half of the route, with the second half being over the flat roads of the Somerset Levels.
There is some off road riding over the nature reserves, but the trails are generally well surfaced and are suitable for road bikes, although there are a few pot holes and there will be muddy / rutted areas in wet conditions.
There is a short section on the A37, which can be busy with fast traffic - please take care here.
