Cycling in Worcestershire

Cyclists in Worcestershire Published Wednesday, 8th May 2019

Cycling in Worcestershire has never been easier with dedicated on and off-road routes for all to enjoy.

The national cycling race, The Tour Series, sponsored by OVO Energy, visits Redditch for the eighth year running this week inspiring both new cyclists and advanced riders to hop on their bikes and see Worcestershire’s stunning landscapes.

Worcestershire cycling routes include multiple terrains and varying distances comprising of a mix of quiet lanes, off-road paths, sections of bridleways and stretches of the national cycle network that runs through Worcestershire.

Cabinet Member with responsibility for Economy and Infrastructure, Councillor Ken Pollock said: “We hope cycling events such as The Tour Series inspire Worcestershire residents to explore the county by bike. We maintain several A to B cycling routes, as well as loop routes that vary in distance from 6 miles to 20 miles. There is certainly something for everyone.”

Cycling is beneficial to your health and fitness, is much cheaper than running a car and above all, is an environmentally friendly alternative to car or public transport. 

Cycling is also allowed on bridleways along Worcestershire County Council’s Public Rights of Way.
