Cycle Routes

The map pages and routes

To see a map page and associated route, click on the left-hand menu. Besides displaying the route on the map there are also some details about the route, such as the ride distance in miles, the total ascent in feet, coffee stops/lunch stops used and when the route was last cycled by the club. All the routes have actually been ridden.

Star Classification

We have also given the route a star classification if it was used for a pedal2gether or club ride. For an explanation of the star classification, see the About Our Rides page.

Download a GPX file of the route

On the map page there is button to download a zipped GPX file of the route.

Note for aficionados – we have called them ‘routes’ but, to be correct, they are ‘tracks’ which display more clearly on Google Maps, as they do not have waypoints to clutter the display. Our tracks are recorded with GPS (Garmin Etrex Vista Cx) on the ride, or plotted before the ride using the Route Buddy application with Ordnance Survey 1/50,000 series mapping on an iMac.

Where we know when the ride was last used by the club we have indicated that on the map page but we cannot guarantee the the road conditions will not have changed since then.
