Our Routes


We have produced an underground style map of the cycling network of Freeways and Quietways. There is a further level of local routes that is not in the TopTube map but will mean that every household in Bristol is only a short distance away from the cycling network.

Freeways The most direct route with the best gradient for cycling in Bristol is usually along a main road. These routes already carry the largest number of cyclists. They must be comprehensively adapted to become high quality, continuous routes for cycling. There are radial and orbital Freeways on the TopTube map.

Quietways Quietways are pleasant largely traffic-free routes that extend through the city and surroundings with clear signing. Bristol already has an extensive network of these including the ‘Greenway’ routes such as Concorde Way, Frome Greenway and Festival Way, and of course the Bristol Bath Railway Path. These are the Quietway routes on the TopTube map.

Local Links Every neighbourhood will have a walking and cycling plan for ‘safe routes to school’, ‘safe routes to work’ and ‘safe routes to shop’. These local plans will set out to make every street a cycling street.
