How To Build The Ultimate Cycle Path | GCN Meets Sustrans

Published on February 2nd 2019


Every cyclist knows a bad bike path when they see one. Or, when you ride into a lamp post on one. But a good bike path, well you hardly notice it! You don’t notice it because it’s just smooth easy riding - and most importantly of all it's safe. So what actually makes a bike path work well? There’s more to it than you might think GCN Winter Sale - Up To 50% Off: Subscribe to GCN: Register your interest in the GCN Club: We’ve come to Sustrans in London to find out more. A little bit of background: Sustrans has recently celebrated its 40th birthday. It started out as Cyclebag, a charity set up in 1977. Their first bike path was the Bristol-Bath cycleway, built on a disused railway track. Which is a bike path a lot of us at GCN are lucky enough to use every day! These days, Sustrans advocates for and works towards sustainable transport solutions as a whole for cyclists and pedestrians - only part of which is bike infrastructure.
