The UK may be a small nation, but it is awash with perfect areas if you enjoy nothing more than grabbing your bike and exploring. Wherever you are based, and wherever you fancy heading to, there is undoubtedly a trail, path, or route to suit your needs.
With that in mind, and in no order, let’s take a look at five of the most picturesque cycle routes across this great isle.
1. The Bristol to Bath Path
If you like your bike rides to be pleasant rather than demanding, are in absolutely no hurry to get from A to B, and like the idea of stopping for a cake or two along the way, this is the choice. If you’re lucky, you may even get the opportunity to cycle alongside the steam trains as they head to Bitton along the Avon Valley Railway.
2. Richmond Park, London
If you want to get out on your bike but don’t want to leave London, there’s no place better than Richmond Park. All of the roads and paths are incredibly well maintained, but the views are spectacular, and some of west London’s best cafes and restaurants are incredibly nearby. Just remember to keep an eye out for the roaming deer!
3. Cromer Ridge, East Anglia
When you think of Norfolk and Suffolk, you probably do not immediately consider hills or peaks. Well, think again! While this route is predominantly full of flat ground and pleasing views, it also incorporates a trip up to Beacon Hill, which at 103 meters above sea level, is far and away from the most elevated point in this part of the world.
Cambridge is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful cities in the UK. And, what is more, it is also one of the most bike-friendly. This is absolutely a route for those who value seeing sights over burning calories, and cycling around this historic city is undeniably one of the best ways to enjoy it in all its splendour, so get out there and enjoy!
5. The Keswick Loop
This is the toughest route on this particular list, but it is potentially also the one that contains the most stunning views and scenery. The Lake District has long been regarded as the jewel in the UK’s tourism crown, and there is no better way to enjoy the majesty of the rolling hills, verdant forests, and calming waters than standing up on the pedals of a rugged mountain bike. This route will test all but the hardiest of cyclists, but it’s well worth the effort.
Traveling by bike is one of the healthiest and most rewarding means of transport, but accidents do occur. When they do, it is very often worth getting in touch with a solicitor to see if you can claim, especially when you do not consider yourself to have been at fault.
