What you'll do

Starting in Bath we will cycle out of the City along the Kennet & Avon canal before joining a series of converted railway paths,hidden bridleways & tracks. Journeying through ancient Wiltshire & Gloucestershire countryside we'll encounter local wildlife, enjoy epic views, cycle along dry stream beds & quiet countryside tracks before wild camping in ancient deciduous woodland. On route your guide Darroch will provide incites into the wildlife, history & foraging opportunities we'll encounter throughout the day. On arrival at our bivouac site for the evening we'll learn how to establish a camp before dining 'al fresco' and incorporating any wild food you have picked during the day into our evening meal. Waking up to the dawn chorus with cup of fresh coffee (or tea) we'll start the day with a filling breakfast before collapsing camp, leaving no trace of our presence. Continuing our adventure through stunning rolling hills and native woodland we'll stop for a refuel at a local cafe before returning to Bath in the early afternoon along the Kennet & Avon canal path to complete a stunning adventure through some of England's most ancient countryside.
