This route involves cycle paths and quiet roads. It starts with a very steep uphill section from Diglis to Bath road. After that the gradients are much gentler. You get nice views across Worcester and towards the Malverns from Battenhall road. The cycle paths can be very rough – so quiet estate roads are often a better option. You lose height much more gently on Timberdine avenue. Finish with a cup of tea at the tea barge in Diglis basin.
