Family-friendly cycling routes in the UK
The map below shows the individual traffic-free and family-friendly cycle routes. Clicking on any route will take you to the route guide for it.
The routes have a star-rated grading system, to make it easy for those cycling with especially younger children, and also more nervous cyclists, to easily assess a route’s suitability. That rating system is explained here. Routes are rated for safety, route surface, availability of toilets and refreshment stops, what barriers may exist and finally, how hilly the route is.
Like all the maps I produce, the one below uses the superb RideWithGPS. I also use the RideWithGPS app on my phone for navigation.
