CycleStreets journey planner


UK-wide cycle journey planner CycleStreets - Cycle navigation for cyclists, by cyclists.

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.

Very Useful Fancy a trip to a certain place but don't want to spend an hour working out a route - this app is invaluable. You can specify what type of journey you want to take, fastest, shortest, quietest etc. You can download a map to use offline and can plan a route on your home WiFi then follow it whilst offline - just be careful to keep on track as if the app tries to re-plan the route it will stall if it cannot connect to the net. You have to get used to the foibles of the convoluted cycle paths, links and road networks but most real issues I have had are down to the limitations of the GPS on my phone.

All you need All you need for finding cycle routes, navigation don't always pick cycle routes when wanting directions during cycling but then I never really use that bit.

Cycle Streets Occasionally superb. Frequently doesn't load. Very frustrating. Not up to date in spite of massive investment and SUSTRANS backing of Nidderdale Cycleway. Now use online Google maps and offline MapsWithMe.

No option to search for an address? Seems like a pretty big thing to miss off a route planning app. Really do not understand the thinking there.
