I have lived in North Bristol for many years, and have never cycled over to Chepstow on the M48 (originally the M4 original bridge built and opened in the 1960s)
It was a glorious day and the tide was in so this makes the views much better and I did not realise what a great bit of engineering it was and currently is and the incline which you do not realise when you are in a car but is manageable
Cycle tracks are open on both sides and you can get to the other side by a tunnel, which is not that bad and keep to the left hand side you will do fine - the track going eastbound is busier by nature so if you wish to have a quieter ride, either go really early or stay on the westbound side
I will be back I am sure and the good news is that it is FREE for cyclists and walkers
It does not take long, but obviously they may shut one side for engineering works or other safety issues ( I presume that the diversions will be in place) and at least this is an option having lost the Aust ferry!! It is easily signposted with Cycle Network signs
You get good views of the new M4 bridge
