Plan your bike riding trip

Use Trip Planner to plan your bike trip

You can plan your bike riding trip based on your skill level and journey preferences, making it easier to plan the right trip for you.

Use the cycle option within the Trip Planner for an end to end trip plan by bike in three easy steps:

  1. Enter your starting point
  2. Enter your destination and;
  3. Choose your preferred type of trip (easier, moderate or more direct), based on your skill level or preference.

The type of trip you choose can be either easier, moderate or more direct.

  • Easier: Ideal for new cyclists, young riders or those that would prefer an easier route by avoiding hills and busy roads where possible.
  • Moderate: Best suited to intermediate cyclists who don't mind the occasional hill and are comfortable riding on some roads.
  • More direct: For experienced cyclists who want to minimise travel time, can handle steeper hills and navigate busy roads.

The Trip Planner will allow you to select a route that connects you to and from public transport.

For example, if you want to cycle for the first part of your journey from your home to a train station, then by train onto the office.

To plan a mixed trip using Trip Planner:

  1. Enter your starting point and destination
  2. In the options tab, select whether you want to include cycling at the start or the end of your trip
  3. Enter how long you are willing to spend cycling
