How to make a ‘Tube map’ of your local cycle network (online guide developed by CycleBath)
An illustrated, step-by-step tutorial on producing a ‘Tube map’ of your current cycle network and identifying, very graphically, where there’s room for improvement.
This colourful and simple-to-read type of map has already proved itself to be a persuasive local lobbying tool: the first, created by the Bristol Cycling Campaign in 2015, has been incorporated into the city’s Cycling Strategy.
Authorities in England may well be particularly grateful for the work you put in, as they’re being asked to draw up network maps to support their funding bids.
If you’re not an active member of your local campaign group, check in with them first to see if they’re aware of the tool and, if so, whether they’re on the case already.
