A34 and A38 blue cycle routes
We’re encouraging everyone to give Birmingham’s A34 New Town Row/High Street and A38 Bristol Road/Bristol Street cycle routes a go!
The new, blue surfaced routes provide wide, two-way cycle routes which are separated from other traffic wherever possible. They also have dedicated signals for cyclists at major junctions.
- In the north of Birmingham, the A34 route provides an easy route by bike between Heathfield Road, Birchfield and the city centre. Download an A34 cycle route map.
- In the south of Birmingham, the A38 route provides an easy route by bike between Selly Oak and the city centre. Download an A38 cycle route map.
If you are driving near to these routes, please take note of new road layouts.
Think BLUE, let cyclists through
Where the blue cycle routes cross central reservations or side roads drivers need to give way to cyclists. Why not consider leaving the car at home and giving the new routes a go?
Download the Birmingham Cycle Revolution ‘Think BLUE, let cyclists through’ campaign leaflet and help us spread the word. This campaign is delivered in partnership with West Midlands Police.
