United Kingdom

It’s difficult to describe cycling in the United Kingdom briefly, because the country is so varied! Whether it’s dramatic coastlines, rolling hills and countryside, or bustling cities you’re looking for, you’ll find it here.

Cycle Routes

The thing to look out for is the National Cycle Network, which consists of more than 14,000 miles of signed cycle routes crossing the length and breadth of the country. About a third of the network is traffic-free, whether it’s on former railway lines, along canals or new paths through parks and cities. Many routes feature great art trails such as the Water Rail Way, from Lincoln to Boston (part of Eurovelo 12). Stunning views can be found all around the network, and no two days of cycling will be the same. The country has a rich culture and history as well as dramatic natural features, so it’s well worth braving the rain!
