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.

Find new routes Works well for me, has helped find some good routes and isn't overly optimistic about speed.

Easy to set up thee routes you want Easy to make your routes with waypoints. Became laggy once it creates the route. Next to try actual navigation.

Must have for long cycle journeys It has a few glitches, but it comes up with amazing clever and complex routes that turn a busy road ride into a back street adventure. Brillant stuff

I like this app....but Whilst navigating, the map vanishes and I'm left with a squiggly line... This makes choosing which road to go down when it is not that obvious *eg in the countryside. I downloaded the vector maps, so why do they not work...? I have then selected in the app!

To many bugs please fix New version work very bad, I am very disappointed. It do not show my position any longer, only on navigate mode, witch it become impossible to navigate the map. The minus a plus bottom are so much need, as an other user say, with gloves it was super hendy. The quiet road calcolation is not always a goog road for bike, maybe a hike or some mtb total off-road path. Please fix bugs..you are my ever best app, I been use it for the start and used for very long distance too..
