Calling all British cyclists: Tell us your best training routes

We want to share your go-to training rides with newcomers to the sport as well as more experienced riders looking to freshen things up

With lots of people taking up cycling during lockdown, as well as more experienced riders making the most of the quieter roads, we want you to share your favourite routes.

Newcomers may not know where to start with plotting out where to ride in their local area, while those who’ve been riding more than usual recently may have become bored of their usual loops.

So, no matter where you’re from in the UK, we’d love for you to share your best routes, no matter how serious a rider you are. Wherever you are in the country, we want to help share your local knowledge. If you have a great Yorkshire route you don’t mind sharing with others, let’s have it. If you have a London route that isn’t just riding laps of Richmond Park again, and again, we’d love to hear from you.
