This route takes you on roads and cycle paths to the Industrial area in Severn Beach. You set off from Patchway station and use an underpass to go under the busy Gloucester rd.

(Google will tell you to use the road so keep your eye out for the crossings if you prefer.)
You will then need to negotiate Cribs Causeway which fortunately has many pavement bike paths and Toucan crossings for bikes.
You will reach Farm Ln after Cribs Causeway which is a recently ungraded section of bike path with great views.
