We are carrying out a major review of the walking and cycling routes that make up the National Cycle Network.
We want to ensure National Cycle Network routes offer the best experience to the millions of families, commuters and tourists who use them every year.
A vision for the National Cycle Network
The National Cycle Network is used by an estimated five million people a year and plays an important role in the UK in encouraging more people to walk and cycle.
We want to build on its success and through this review achieve a network of safe, accessible and high-quality routes and paths that will make walking and cycling easier for everyone, regardless of their age and abilities and inspire a new generation to get on their bikes.
Physical review of the National Cycle Network
We are preparing detailed reports on the physical condition of the Network, based on data collected in 2016-17.
Along with feedback from staff and volunteers, our regional and national teams will use this data to identify sections of routes that could be improved.
