Cycle Routes

Routes are organised in order of distance, starting with the shortest. Route numbers simply reflect the order in which they were created. Considerable effort has been made to achieve accuracy, but this cannot be guaranteed. If you spot any errors please let us know at website@wheel-easy.org.uk. You are welcome to use the routes at their own risk. Please note that conditions might have changed on the ground since the routes were created.

Click on the route description link in the table to see the route details and the map (using RidewithGPS), which shows more information, including climb details and also to be able to download GPX data.
For our list of Off-Road routes check this page.

Some routes have unpaved sections. They are marked as ** <Route Name> (Gravel). All are passable on a bike, but are marked to help those who wish to stay on tarmac. The unpaved sections can be long or short and might be avoidable.
