Pedalling somewhere new, with routes.cc

As keen cyclists, we love a day out on two wheels, escaping the city and exploring somewhere new — but discovering great places to ride can be a challenge.

Routes created by others are hard to find, and the quality can vary enormously. You don’t know what you’re signing up for — a section of dual carriageway, a detour through a housing estate, no cafe for 50 miles..?! It’s easier to ride what you already know, and that takes away the adventure.

The best rides happen when routes are planned carefully by someone with local knowledge. They’ve ridden every road, summited the best climbs and know which pubs have a good beer garden.

Introducing routes.cc, a catalogue of great rides. A companion for your adventures, and the nudge out the door we all occasionally need to explore somewhere new.

routes.cc is a curated, community-powered source for the best rides. Each route has been vetted, has a proper description, suggested stops, and turn-by-turn directions.

We’d love you to try it out, to shout about it, and to share your favourite routes with us so we can all benefit from them.

It’s free, and with no sign-up required. We hope you like it — let us know what you think.

See you on the road,
Jonathan & Alex. 🚲
