Fancy heading into the glorious British countryside for some cycle exploration? Then Visit Wiltshire has an offer you can’t refuse.
Just log on to its website and download any of its 10 new — and free — off-road cycling maps.
The routes vary in difficulty and length, from six-mile meanders to 30-mile adventures, while the scenery on offer promises everything from rolling hills to prehistoric sites and wooded valleys.
Included on the maps are points of interest, local shops and pubs for those all-important refreshment stops. Meanwhile, Visit Wiltshire’s website features a particularly useful list of accommodation providers who welcome cyclists and provide safe storage for bikes and equipment.
