How to use our routes

All the cycle routes we’re sharing at the moment are British Cycling accredited, meaning they’ve been planned and fully risk-assessed by one of our trained route planners.
These British Cycling routes were accredited as being safe to ride and were accurately mapped at the time they were risk-assessed. Please note though that routes are designed as a guide only – British Cycling can’t take responsibility for any changes to the terrain or conditions which may affect the route. Always use common sense when riding any of these routes.
We’re currently looking at ways of helping you to create and upload your own routes. Watch this space!
We don’t offer an option to print step-by-step directions, because most routes would run to pages and pages! Instead, you can download a GPX file to your cycling computer which will give you accurate directions, or print off a route card for a handy overall view.
A GPX file is an electronic version of a route. It’s a simple format for sharing satellite navigation data. You can upload a GPX file to a cycling computer, or to an iOS, Android or Windows mobile device. Please note that some cycle computers require you to convert the GPX file into a TCX file before uploading.

You can also upload a GPX file to a number of mobile apps which make your phone work just like a GPS device. Please note iPhone users will have to have a mobile app already installed to save the GPX file. Take a look in your app store for one that suits you.
Why not use Ride Social to organise your own ride using the route? It’s a great way to discover people near you with similar cycling interests. Just click ‘create a ride’, and away you go.

Many of our routes are also used by our guided rides – those that do feature a ‘ride coming soon using this route’ section. Joining one of these rides is free and a great way to check out the route with other people.
