Welcome! You've made it this far... now select a map from the right, grab your bike
and get going! It's gonna be a blast.
Generally the rides outlined here focus on traffic-free routes of the National Cycle Network. Routes may include quiet roads as well as "shared-use" pavements. Examine the maps closely to understand the conditions prior to your ride. Each route listed includes a colour-coded map indicating specific terrain along with the distance and difficulty of the ride.
Read the descriptions carefully, preview the map(s), and choose the route which best suits your individual experience, skill, and fitness level.
Note: some routes listed start and end at different locations. Be sure to examine the maps closely. Also... Distances DO NOT equal DIFFICULTY. (see: elevation gain +/-).
