£15 for full day cycle hire, worth it. Great cycle track and everyone on it friendly. Great views and particularly enjoyed Axbridge. Must do whilst in Cheddar xx

Lovely place to go for a bike ride. I am not very fit but could manage the lanes quite well. Very enjoyable. We stopped half way for a cup of tea and to pick some blackberries!
