Cycling Routes

Birmingham Cycle Revolution

If you are thinking of exploring your local area or would like to travel to work by cycle then, you can use our interactive cycle map which shows all the on-road, and off road routes, including canal towpaths, in Birmingham. An open source map and journey planner is also available from cycle streets, showing cycle parking, cycle shops and other places of interest.

Want to get the family cycling more but not sure where to start?

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!

Have fun and explore some of the city’s fantastic outdoor spaces right on your doorstep. These handy printable maps detail rides along a range of traffic free, clean and smooth green- space routes, perfect for spending family time together in the great outdoors. Before you head out on your ride, take a look at our advice pages, offering guidance to ensure your bike is roadworthy and safe. You can also find our handy guides including the Share with Care guide on sharing space with pedestrians and other path users and our Winter Cycling guide offering advice for riding during the Winter months.

Please note: not all the roads that these routes cross have formal crossings in place yet. Please take care and be patient when crossing. Look out for any signage that’s in place on the route. If you find spots where the signage is not clear, use the map to work out where the route goes.

We strongly encourage all riders to wear a helmet, this is particularly important for children especially if they’re new to cycling. Stay safe and most of all, have fun!
