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.

Journey planner It is impossible to find the option to plan a journey by entering start and end destination. Strange app!

Mostly unusable Conceptually this is a great app. I have found some interesting and useful routes from it and there is nothing else available that does the same job. However I have now given up using it mainly because the mapping is completely unreadable on any current smart phone. The resolution is incompatible and does not scale. It is also pitifully slow to load regardless of bandwidth, exactly like the sustrans website. Geat shame.

Poor To date has failed every time I used it. Either doesn't work with my nexus 5 or incompatible with lollipop.

Cycle paths ? This app seems to ignore cycle paths and instead sends me down country roads, I don't get it, if there's a cycle path from edinburgh to my destination why not use it ???

Map won't show! Just installed it and map worked at first but now every time I open it the screen just fills up with loads of images of the app icon and completely obscures the map. Have had to revert to Google maps which keeps trying to kill me on main roads in central London. HELP! I am a newbie rider with no road sense. I need quiet routes.... Eff off google!!!!
