STAGE 2: OKEHAMPTON TO BATH

The highlight of day two is undoubtedly the magnificent climb of Cheddar Gorge before your arrival in the UNESCO world heritage city of Bath

Overview

Skirting the edge of Dartmoor, crossing the Quantock Hills and arriving at the magnificent climb of Cheddar Gorge; this is certainly another ‘grippy’ day on the bike. The arrival in the stunning city of Bath with a bed for the night in the Uni should inspire you onwards, but the town is built on an extinct volcano, meaning you will have a little sting in the tail with the final ascent up to the basecamp.
