This trip will get us out on our nearest stretch of salty water, up past the sights of Avonmouth, under the Prince of Wales Bridge (Second Severn Crossing) and up the first bit of the Wye to Chepstow. We will have a lunch stop at Chepstow before riding the tide back to Portishead.
Although the round trip is 40km we will be using the tide to our benefit and so it will fell more like 25. Some fast currents and two impressive bridges to have a look at.
