Cycle Routes

The UK has a plethora of named and / or numbered cycled routes, all curated under the sometimes eccentric Sustrans. Sustrans seeming phobia of A roads (no matter how quiet some of the rural ones have become) or busy town roads means that the routes can be winding, directionless, and somewhat longer that required. It’s also led to some stunning cycling if you’re not interested in getting between places too quickly.

I’m trying to cycle many of the better known ones (and you can see my holiday write ups here) but in these pages I thought I’d give my thoughts on the routes themselves
