Sustrans invite people to sponsor a mile of the National Cycle Network

Sponsor a mile of the National Cycle Network as a Christmas gift, and receive a certificate and fridge magnet

It’s almost impossible to go about your daily commute without encountering a route of the National Cycle Network.

Now, Sustrans who maintain the 14,000+ miles of routes across the UK, are allowing people to sponsor a mile of their favourite route – for just £30.

The National Cycle Network has been in use since 1984 and the signed cycle routes now form an entire Coast 2 Coast passing from Cumbria to the North-East, as well as other iconic cycle routes in the country including the Devon Tarka Trail.

Sustrans estimate that the paths are used by 4.8 million people each year, collectively making 748 million journeys.

Those who a sponsor a mile get a personalised certificate, a fridge magnet and Christmas messages from the gift giver.

Over 750 miles have so far been sponsored. To find out more visit
