National Cycle Route 52

National Cycle Route 52 runs north-south across the city, as part of a long-distance route between Warwick and Osgathorpe, north of Coalville.

In the south of the city, NCR 52 uses a combination of traffic-free paths and quiet streets, providing a useful and direct link between Kenilworth and the City Centre via the University of Warwick main campus and Earlsdon.  Funded by Sustrans, improvements to this route are currently being built along Lynchgate Road, near Cannon Park Shopping Centre. This section is expected to open in summer 2024.  This complements previous improvements to the cycle route along Charter Avenue, between Lynchgate Road and the A45.   

North of the city, NCR follows Coventry Canal towards Bedworth, providing a useful link to Foleshill, Coventry Arena and Longford.
