Family routes

Have fun and explore some of the city’s fantastic outdoor spaces right on your doorstep. We have selected a few of our favourite traffic free city cycling routes, suitable for all ages and abilities. Many of the chosen paths and routes have recently benefited from improvements and developments through the Birmingham Cycle Revolution.

Not all the roads that these routes cross have formal crossings in place. 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.

Before you head out on your ride, take a look at our advice pages, offering guidance to ensure your bike is roadworthy and safe.

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!
