Eighty mile cycle route
The South Somerset 80-mile Cycleway will lead you on a cycling adventure along a hedge-lined network
of sleepy country lanes whilst calling into some of the county's pretty market towns and historic villages.
This cycle trip will take you deep into the county and guarantees that you’ll be tasting some of Somerset’s
finest food and drink along the way.
The 80-mile route is fully waymarked, and you can break it down into shorter sections if you prefer. When
used in conjunction with the downloadable maps, you can pedal at your leisure whilst soaking up the West
Country hospitality and rewarding views.
You can cycle this circular route in either direction, but our route guidance goes anti-clockwise, starting at Yeovil Junction towards Sherborne. Much of the route is guided by brown waymarkers and covers some Sustrans routes too including routes 30, 26 and 33. Other parts of the route are not covered by the National Cycle Route.
The route is divided into eight bite-size sections - so do as much or as little as you like!

Download the route as a GPX File
You can also download the cycling route as a GPX file straight to your phone or device. To do this, you will need an application that enables you to open GPX files, like OS maps or Komoot. Once you have apps like these installed, the GPX file can be uploaded and you can easily access the route this way - anti-clockwise, like the leaflet.

Access the route via Sustrans website:
Sustrans also have the route on their website - however, they have it mapped in a clockwise direction. As already mentioned, you can navigate in either direction as it is a circular route and the waymarkers will work in both ways.
