Our database the best cycling routes is growing all the time. Our team and partners are based in the great North of England, and Wales from 2016 as we expand into this great country. We believe that the wild and rugged countryside of our National Parks provide the best locations in the UK for all forms of cycling. 

All of our bike routes have elevation profiles and distance in miles. They have a google map showing a satellite view and the ability to open in google earth, giving a fly-through feeling. Those routes marked on our google map with a green cycle are mtb, and those in blue are road routes. The North Wales section is new and will grow rapidly over the next few months.

Where you see this symbol on route pages:  then click it for a link to the Ordnance Survey interactive map for that route.

This should assist you in choosing a base to go riding from. The home page has a wider google map showing routes across the whole region.

Cycling on and off the road requires skills and confidence. Don't bite off more than you can chew. We actively support the Cycle Training Board National Standard. If you want details of this scheme: click here

Off road skills courses are varied and run by several organisations. We support the SMBLA and British Cycling based courses. Cyclewise at Whinlatter deliver some fantastic courses and have their own training trail in the forest. The routes may go into remote areas of open country or along isolated lanes. Take a map and know how to use it. Cycle sensibly, flick through the website and enjoy the ride.
