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.
