A wide range of routes for different types of cycling can be found via the links at the top of the page.

Online tools for cycle route planning

A great online tool is CycleStreets (also available as an app). You enter a starting point and end point for your journey. The tool will provide you with three different options:

  • fastest route
  • balanced route
  • quietest route

It will also estimate how long the route will take.  We would recommend CycleStreets over Google Maps. 

You could also plot your own route online, save it and use your mobile phone for turn-by-turn voice navigation. There are quite a few programs/apps out there for free that work well. Try Strava or Ride with GPS.
