Bike Stops

Page under construction  
I’m compiling this list of bike stops from places I’ve visited and other places which have been recommended to me by friends. I’m not including pubs because (a) there are pubs everywhere and (b) I believe that the consumption of alcohol is not compatible with safe riding practices.

If you visit any of these stops and have updated information which you’d like me to include, please email me using this link.

If you discover any biker-friendly places which aren’t in my list, please visit any of these stops and have updated information which you’d like me to include, please email me using this link.

All distances are measured from my house in Longford Lane, Gloucester. To calculate the distance from another location, paste the postcode or the latitude/longitude provided into Google maps.
