Welcome to Worcester

What a difference a bridge makes. Cycling in the ‘Faithful City’ is now easier and more enjoyable than ever, thanks to a stunning new bridge over the River Severn at Diglis. Motorists are corralled into two river crossings; cyclists have four to choose from.

There’s a brace of cycle paths, locally known as ‘Pedways’, including recently upgraded routes beside the Severn and along the canal, and more are being developed – including a safe route to Malvern. Worcester’s main roads aren’t great for cyclists, but with a little planning, a bike is the best way to get about.
