Frome - Mells - Cranmore - Palette & Pasture - Marston Park - Frome

This 23 mile route offers you a wonderful circuit on the bike that you can enjoy over a half day (if you don't want to stop too long in each place), or a full day if you want to spend an extended period of time at one of your stopping points. We can customise it further for you to add in extra miles, or to reduce the distance.

Setting off from the Cheese & Grain car park in the centre of Frome, where we can meet you with your bikes, you head off riding alongside the river Frome and then onto some quiet roads to head out of town and into the countryside. Enjoy fantastic rural views as you ride the lovely country roads towards the medieval village of Mells, around 6 miles into your route. Your destination is their famous community run shop & cafe in the heart of the village, and a recommended stop on the Somerset Food Trail. You take a scenic route that undulates through the Mendips (so much fun on an e-bike and a chance to ensure you use that Turbo setting!) before crossing the A361 at Cranmore (there's a cafe at the old steam train station if you need refreshments, but save some space for ice cream!) and heading towards Trudoxhill and your 2nd food festival stop for a delicious ice cream! (Bike parking available).

When you've eaten your fill, undulate your way through the village of Trudoxhill, taking the road towards West Woodlands. Marston Park is just 2.5miles from Palette & Pasture, on quiet roads. Offering relaxed al fresco refreshments by the lake, with beautiful views and a chilled vibe and music, it is a great place to visit for coffee or to stay longer.

Your return to Frome avoids busy roads until the last minute when we route you back to the Cheese & Grain.
