Cycle Routes in North Warwickshire
Cycling in North Warwickshire
The Community Development Team at North Warwickshire Borough Council, have been successful in an application to LEADER funding, to re-invigorate the North Warwickshire Cycle Way (Red Route) and create three family cycle routes around Kingsbury Water Park (KWP).
The Red Route
The Red Route is a 34 mile circular route around the borough. This road route and is aimed at experienced and confident cyclists that wish to visit the North Warwickshire countryside. The route passes some of North Warwickshire's key assets such as Astley Castle, Shustoke Reservoir and Hartshill Hayes Country Park. There are also plenty of restaurants, cafés and public houses to stop off for refreshments.
The three family routes, which are coloured pink, green and blue, are designed to provide a safe, stress free and enjoyable experience cycling experience for families, leisure cyclists and beginners. KWP is an ideal location to explore the area by bike, with flat terrain and surfaced paths, everyone is catered for.
The development of these routes will include the updating of signage, creation of GPX files for downloading the route, cycle racks at various locations around the route and also an up-to-date website with information about places to stop, places to stay and places to eat and see. We are keen to make sure that we involve businesses on route, so if you are on the route and have not been involved please get in touch.
When will the routes be ready?
It is hoped that all the routes will be ready to cycle from July 2018. There will be a variety of cycling events to launch these routes so please like our Facebook page or regularly check the website.
