Detailed information: 

Our official guidebook brings together 150 of the UK’s finest traffic-free walking and cycling routes in celebration of 20 years of the National Cycle Network.

Offering a unique glimpse into the UK’s remarkable landscapes, history, culture and architecture. The rides range from the wild and ethereal mountain tracks of Snowdonia, to fairy tale woodland trails through the Forest of Dean, and elegant city centre paths linking London’s Royal Parks and palaces.

The majority of routes are entirely traffic-free, but some involve short sections on quiet roads, or safe places to cross main roads where necessary.

Our guide to traffic-free cycle rides includes:

  • Maps and photographs

  • Routes for all ages and abilities, graded from easy to challenging

  • The best cycle-friendly places to stay, eat, and drink along way

  • Local bike hire centres and public transport links 

  • Insightful advice on extending the rides or connecting to other nearby routes

  • Distance, terrain, gradient and surface quality information for each route

  • Free GPX downloads for all routes when you buy from Sustrans' Shop

Inspiring and informative, this is a comprehensive guide to traffic-free cycling and a fitting tribute to the National Cycle Network on its 20th anniversary, with a foreword from Olympic gold medallist Joanna Rowsell MBE.

The National Cycle Network (often known as the NCN) is a series of safe, traffic-free paths and quiet on-road cycling and walking routes that connect every major town and city.

The Network passes within a mile of half of all UK homes and now stretches over 14,000 miles across the length and breadth of the UK. Almost 5 million people use the National Cycle Network, and despite its name, the Network isn't just for cyclists, it’s also popular with walkers, joggers, wheelchair users and horse riders too.

Annually the National Cycle Network costs us around £1 million a year to maintain and repair the parts of the Network we own. In addition, the we fund thousands of volunteers who give up their time to help keep the Network up to a good standard by clearing vegetation, glass and other hazards. The vast majority of this money comes from donations from our supporters. To find out more about supporting our work see our Support us page.
