Urban Explorer Routes

A series of leaflets describing rides in the Birmingham area.   The rides are on quiet roads, off road or on cycleways & towpaths etc. There is parking near the start and the distance is around 6-15 miles.   For families, it's easy to shorten the route as required.

Birmingham Greenways

Birmingham has a large network of off-road routes, if you only know where to look.


A network of tolerably car-free routes.

Organised Rides

There is a range of group rides available to cyclists in and around Birmingham, but those who are just starting out on cycling or who are getting back in the saddle after a long break may prefer something gentler.
