National Cycle Network Signs
National Cycle Network Signs
Sign attached to the bridge at Longford Road West (SJ8894 : Fallowfield Loop Line, Bridge at Longford Road East). The one on the left hand side reads:

This is part of the National Cycle
Network. This 10,000 mile project
is being developed by a partnership
of local authorities and others,
and is co-ordinated by the
charity Sustrans.

As far as possible, the National Cycle Network
follows quiet roads or purpose
built traffic-free paths to avoid
main roads. It aims to
connect the centre of
each town along the way.

Traffic free sections are
used by walkers, cyclists
and sometimes horses.
Please respect other users.

The one on the right reads:

the use of non-
travellers only.

path by kind
permission of
the landowner.
It is not a public
right of way.

The National Cycle Network
The National Cycle Network is a network of cycle routes. It was created by the charity Sustrans LinkExternal link (Sustainable Transport), aided by a National Lottery grant.

Many routes aim to minimise contact with motor traffic, though 70% of them are on roads.[2] In some cases the NCN uses pedestrian routes, disused railways, minor roads, canal towpaths, or traffic-calmed routes in towns and cities.
