There are many places across the county that cyclists like to go to for specific types of cycling or that have been designed for more specialist riding.
Road cycling or touring
Northamptonshire is a very rural county and, as such, it is blessed with a huge array of quiet country lanes and byways that are perfect for stretching the legs on a longer road ride. Whilst it is always wise to plan your route beforehand, road cycling is arguably the best way of exploring parts of the Northamptonshire countryside that you have never been to before or even know existed.
Not sure where to start in finding good road routes? The Northampton branch of the Cyclists Touring Club (CTC), have an
all-year-round programme of rides that new riders are welcome to join on a trial basis. Or by joining a
cycling club you will discover good cycling routes in the company of others.
Of course, many of you will already have favourite routes and we are always keen to hear the best. Send them to us via
Facebook and we will share them.
