Four routes on the UK’s National Cycle Network pass through Glasgow. National Routes feature on-road and traffic-free sections, with the latter taking in cycle lanes and paths along rivers and canals, through country and national parks.
Glasgow’s four National Routes link the city to the west coast of Argyll, Leith on the east coast, Inverness in the north and Gretna in the south of Scotland. But it doesn’t stop there. Connected into the National Cycle Network these routes can take you further into the UK, as far south as Lands End and deep into Northern Ireland.
A short section of a National Route may feature in your daily commute. A longer section may be just right for a family day out, cycling to the forest, loch or beach. Your route, your choice.
