Taking the family out on a bike ride is a great way to get some fresh air, exercise and a dose of feel good! 

British Cycling's Let’s Ride website provides ideas and inspiration including suggested routes to ride near you. British Cycling routes are now also available to view on OS Maps online and in the OS Maps App.

Plan your own cycle ride

Find your way by bike using the online cycle journey planner or browse Open Cycle Map. If you have a Smartphone download the Bike Citizens App to navigate by bike. Download the app from Google Play or Apple App Store.

Traffic-free places to ride  

Share with care

Some cycle paths are shared with other users. Don't forget to:

  • give way to pedestrians, wheelchair users and horse riders, making sure you give them plenty of room
  • keep to your side of any dividing line
  • be prepared to slow down and stop if necessary
  • do not expect to cycle at high speeds

You should only cycle on pavements where signs show it is allowed.

Cycling by train

Bike and train is an ideal combination for longer journeys. The Transport for West Midlands website can help you plan your journey.

Free cycle parking is available at Coventry, Canley, Coventry Arena and Tile Hill stations. 

West Midlands Trains, London North WesternCross Country Trains and Avanti West Coast all carry cycles free-of-charge. A reservation is required on Avanti West Coast and is recommended on Cross Country Trains.
