For the first time all of the UK's signed cycle routes are brought together on one map. Using the outstanding quality and detail of Times Comprehensive Atlas mapping, route networks such as Sustrans' National Cycle Network and the National Byway are traced, together with details of their status to let cyclists know what to expect - traffic - free or on road as well as planned future routes. Other routes include regional routes - county cycle ways and the like -and those National Trails on which bikes are allowed such as the Pennine Bridleway.
A bespoke key highlights services of particular use to cyclists. The UK's rail network and it's myriad of stations is detailed in full, showing at a glance where and how cyclists can combine bike and train to get access to the country's best cycling. Also featured are mountain biking centres (there have been tremendous developments in the building of trails for all levels of rider in recent times, especially in Scotland, Northern England and Wales).
The UK's Youth Hostel network is also shown to complete what has to be the ultimate planning tool for any cyclist planning rides in the UK. As the scale of the map makes it suitable for planning rather than navigation full details are given of where you can get detailed navigation maps of popular rides, such as the C2C, the Thames Valley and The Celtic Trail.
