The scenic cycling route from Newport Station to ONS

This is the scenic cycling route from Newport Station to ONS (and IPO).

It runs alongside the River Usk and goes right past the Transporter Bridge.

I was lucky enough to work over at ONS for a couple of years which meant commuting from Bristol to Newport.

For the whole time I was there, a friend kindly leant me their Brompton folding bike. This meant I could guarantee getting the bike on the train and use it for the Bristol and Newport legs of the journey.

If you’re in a rush and don’t want to go over a steep hill, the quickest route is through the one-way system and along the Cardiff Road past the hospital.

One or two people I know – who didn’t want to risk not getting their full size bike on the train – left a ‘hack’ bike locked up at Newport Station.
