CycleStreets journey planner

CycleStreets journey planner


Plan routes from A to B anywhere in the UK, with a choice of four routing modes to suit a range of cyclists from beginner to regular commuter. The Photomap lets you submit photos of infrastructure problems or good practice around the UK.

PLAN BIKE NAVIGATION FROM A TO B TO C

Select a start and finish point, plus intermediate waypoints, by tapping on the map, by searching for names/places/postcodes, or by using your current location, and tap to obtain the route. Uses the general street network, plus Sustrans and other routes.

CHOICE OF FOUR ROUTING MODES

The app produces routes that will suit most cyclists. It can optionally can find faster or quieter routes for different types of rider. Routes are fetched from the CycleStreets website.

HILLS? NO PROBLEM!

The journey planner knows about hills, and finds routes that take advantage of the descents and avoids the ascents where possible. It balances these against the available road types. The route can be displayed on a map with contours using the OpenCycleMap option.

STAGE-BY-STAGE ITINERARY

As well as the main map view, planned routes are loaded into an itinerary view, so you can follow each part of the journey. The street name, time and length are all shown, as is a detailed map for each individual stage of the journey. Routes are saved so you can also follow them again later.

PHOTOMAP

The Photomap is a cycling advocacy tool used by campaign groups around the country. Use it to browse examples of problems or good practice, and add your own pictures. Need more cycle parking in your favourite spot in town? Sign in with a free account and add a photo of it to the Photomap.

OPENSTREETMAP

Routing makes use of OpenStreetMap data, the brilliant 'geo-wiki' to which you can contribute. Note that, at present, some areas of the country have better coverage than others. Streets and paths of all kinds, including Sustrans routes and Local Authority network, are included. Routing quality is being developed all the time, with new types of cycling and street data being added and interpreted by the route planner.

Garbage Tried to work out my route, this sends me half way up my road then tells me to double back on a half mile detour in the wrong direction. Useless! Uninstalled.

Stressfully Slow Even with offline pack it takes minutes to load. As the pack includes none of the details of OCM it's of limited use anyway. You cannot manipulate the route planner to go a certain way that you prefer, which is essential since no mapping app can ever be perfect. You can go between 2 saved locations or select points on map but not mix the two, which is annoying when most new journeys start or end at saved spots. Route planner has max 10 waypoints which is no good for London's round-the-houses infrastructure.

Great voice navigation Strap phone to my arm and it talks me through the quiet back streets of London. Wish there was better integration with rental bike places showing empty slots near destination.

Wot, no Lincoln? Typed in Lincoln in journey planner, only got Lincolns in the USA, even after downloading UK map. D'OH!! Best stick with the desktop version and use paper maps for travelling. Unless I want to go to the USA...
