With miles of canals and a compact city centre, what better way to explore Birmingham and the wider region than by bicycle?
Birmingham Cycle Revolution
The Birmingham Cycle Revolution team has selected our favourite traffic free city cycling routes to suit all ages and abilities. Many of the chosen paths and routes have recently benefited from improvements and developments made through the Birmingham Cycle Revolution project, and there’s more to come!t.
To print off nine “Urban Explorer Routes” using quiet roads, cycleways and towpaths, visit the Birmingham cycling campaign website www.pushbikes.org.uk and click on “Rides”.
Try the new cycle route function on Google Maps. Search for your area, hover over “Satellite” at the top right and in the drop-down menu click on “Bicycling” for a map showing off-road trails, bike lanes and bike-friendly roads.
Designed by cyclists, www.cyclestreets.net not only plots a route but shows the number of traffic lights you’ll cross, the calories you’ll burn and the time of your journey (taking account of hills).
