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. In some cases the NCN uses pedestrian routes, disused railways, minor roads, canal towpaths, or traffic-calmed routes in towns and cities.

The Cross Britain Way (Macmillan Way)

The Cross Britain Way is a 279 mile, east-west trail across England and Wales, created to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Starting at Boston (where the original Macmillan Way starts), it crosses the Fens, the Vale of Belvoir, the Leicestershire/Nottinghamshire Wolds, the National Forest, Cannock Chase, East Shropshire along the Iron Bridge Gorge, the Shropshire Hills, the hills of mid Wales, the Berwyn Mountains, and Snowdonia National Park, to its end at Barmouth.
