Wrexham to Wolverhampton

What a fantastic route today. I'd travelling most of the early stages of the journey but then ended up travelling through beautiful villages with odd names...Oven Bottom, Weston Jones, Wistanswick, Coven to name a few. At less than 6 miles from Wolverhampton there was still horse poo on the road! Barely any traffic and just cow parsley and buttercups for company. Thanks once again 

Ditton Marsh to St. Michael's Road, Widnes

Hi, Id set a route to get to a rugby league game in thatto heath on 12th March 2023. All was going well. We worked our way through Runcorn which was excellent, then over the Runcorn (Jubilee) Bridge adn then onto NCN 63 taking us below the bridge to near West Bank Dockland Park. We turned right onto Desoto Road to a roundabout and the route took us left into an industrial area. The route then went through a security gate which opened on the press of a buzzer. The route then tries to take cyclist under a railway line and onto St Michaels Road. However there is no way through to the the railway underpass. It has been fenced off with metal barred fencing. So we retraced our rout back to the security gate....and then couldn't get it to open! After about 10 minutes of trying i pulled a steel wire at the lower section of the gate and the gate then opened! Please review any routes in this area to avoid trying to send riders in this direction

I have used cycle.travel to.plan routes before but after 2 years of not touring due to the COVID situation. It was great to be back on the road seeing what the routes I'd planned actually looked like.

The ride was from Ardnamurchan Point to Ness Point (Lowestoft)... furthest point West on the British mainland to the furthest point East..

but first to get to Ardnamurchan lighthouse! I used cycle.travel to plan all legs including the one from home to Crewe station to catch the Caledonian Sleeper! The highlight of this was not only the beautiful Cheshire countryside but the routes through Nantwich and Crewe.

Once off the Sleeper in Fort William we followed NCN route 78 to Oban...the last 8 miles being a brutal climb with a loaded bike!

Then Felly onto the Isle of Mull and a 33km ride to Tobermory.

The next day, up early to catch the 07:20 ferry to Kilchoan and a risk 12km ride to Ardnamurchan lighthouse, the most westerly point on the British mainland. Once the photos were taken it was time to head East (and South!) retracing our steps to Kilchoan, the ferry, Tobermory and a very wet ride back to Craignure and the ferry to Oban. We rode a further 57km to our hostel near Lochgilphead.

The next leg was again NCN78 to Ardrishaig and Cloanaig a ferry to the Isle of Arran. Lochranza to Brodick, a ferry to Ardrossan and an evening ride to Ayr again following the National Cycle Network.

The journey was then all on mainland. Ayr - Dumfries - Penrith - Catterick Garrison - Welton (Humber Bridge) - Boston - Dereham and finally Lowestoft.

I used cycle.travel to plan routes between our booked accommodation trying to keep to around 115km. Our longest leg was 142km and the shortest, just 78km.

I'd like to say thank you to cycle.travel for such a great facility and helping me see some of the most amazing, beautiful and quiet roads in Britain.

Many thanks.

London to Wrexham

Hi again,

A long time since I posted but I have been using cycle.travel to plan routes and always say how good the website is for finding routes.

Last Sunday (29th July 2018) I took the train to London to participate in the RideLondon Surrey 100. Sportives are not normally my thing but I'd signed up to raise money for the FireFighters Charity being retired from the Fire and Rescue Service isn 2008. But Ithough I would extend my ride and after a night in St. Pauls Youth Hostel I had decided to ride back home to Wrexham.

Day 1 was from St Paul's London to Milton Keynes. I am so glad I had downloaded a cycle.travel route out of London. The roule used the London Cycle Network out towards Wood Green and followed the New River path staying away from busy roads and travelleing through park ways. Very pleasant indeed. Once out into Buckinghamshire I was on National Cycle Network routes and through Luton to Dunstable following their amazing bus 'railway'!. Lots of old railway lines had been brought back into use to link up this journey.

A word of warning NCN12 near South Mimms is signed as "The Great North Way" but is actiually like cycling through a hedge in parts! Its narrow and overgrown near the M25.

The canal paths into Milton Keynes are - lets say - variable! Some very narrow gates - at least one needed the removal of my panniers to get through - and some very poor surface meant progress could be quite slow.

I have to say a big THANK YOU to cycle.travel I don't think I could have planned a nicer route out of London and I doubt I'd ever hve found the YHA in Milton Keynes without a GPS!
