SplashMaps has teamed up with Excellent Books to create the UK Cycle SplashMap North. It’s our answer to all those planning bigger journeys on their bikes in the North half of the United Kingdom and Ireland.
It is the Northern part of our 2 part series that together comprise all of the UK’s signed cycle routes. Using the outstanding quality and detail of Times Comprehensive Atlas mapping, Sustrans’ National Cycle Network and other popular cycle trails are featured and defined – traffic free or on road. Family cyclists will love the listed traffic-free trails. Other routes featured in the series include regional routes such as county cycle ways and those National Trails on which bikes are allowed such as the Pennine Bridleway and the Ridgeway. Many hundreds of miles of minor road routes have been added for the 2nd edition and links to signed cross-channel routes such as the Avenue Verte (London-Paris) are shown so that long distance route planning is also made easy. A bespoke key makes the map easy to understand at a glance. The UK’s rail network and its myriad of stations is detailed, showing at a glance where and how cyclists can combine bike and train to get access to the country’s best cycling. As the scale of the map makes it suitable for planning rather than navigation, full details are given of where you can get larger scale maps of popular rides, such as the C2C, the Devon Coast to Coast and the Way of the Roses. The 2014 Tour de France route sections within the UK are featured and available in greater detail here!
The map is printed onto our weatherproof, washable, wearable, breathable SplashMaps Pro material. It is tear resistant, tough, beautiful and practical in every weather condition.
