Nine volunteers worked together to clear a well-used path in Portbury on Saturday.
Four people from Sustrans, a charity promoting cycling and walking, were joined by cyclists from North Somerset.
Together, they cleared a stretch of the off-road section of the National Cycle Network Route 26 at Sheepway.
They spent Saturday morning clearing the path, and plan to carry out further work in February.
Andrew Youngs, a Sustrans volunteer ranger, said: “It is hoped a further work morning can be held in February to clear further sections of the path.
