Supporting diverse communities across the West Midlands, Ordnance Survey and British Cycling have launched a collection of fantastic new cycling routes, perfect for the whole family. With support from Sport England, and continuing the Commonwealth Games Legacy, 80 British Cycling routes will be added to OS Maps. 

Five traffic-free routes in the West Midlands

Bespoke maps have been made for five of the routes and will be printed and distributed across local communities, encouraging everyone to grab their bikes and enjoy a day in the area on two wheels. 

The maps are packed full of information and wonderfully illustrated to showcase what a great experience families can have on a bike without having to travel far. Discover the new routes and start planning your next bike ride in the West Midlands!
