We have two priorities - to make the National Cycle Network safer and more accessible for everyone.
In 2018, we presented a new vision for the National Cycle Network in our Paths for Everyone review.
We're working with our partners, volunteers, supporters and local communities to make this vision of a traffic-free, more consistent and accessible Network for everyone a reality.
We want to create a Network where families can enjoy bike rides away from motor traffic.
Where those who are less mobile can go at their own pace. And where walkers can fill their lungs with fresh air.
We’re involving local communities in shaping and caring for their local paths. And we're responding to feedback from people who use the Network.
Our work with local and national governments to make the Network better and more accessible continues. We have 80 improvement schemes being delivered and more ready in the pipeline.
Together, we're moving towards our 2040 vision of paths for everyone.
By 2040 we want to see
5,000 more miles
of traffic-free paths
potential economic benefit realised
We published our review of the National Cycle Network along with our recommendations for improvement, in November 2018.
As custodians of the National Cycle Network, it's our role to care for it, improve it and steward a long-term vision for its future.
In the face of a national climate and ecological emergency, traffic-free paths have the power to improve biodiversity and protect wildlife.
