Rights of Way Improvement Plans (England & Wales)

Local Access Forums (England & Wales)

Bridleways, byways and cycle tracks (England & Wales)
Cyclist riding off-road
Closing the gaps for cycling in public rights of way and improving maintenance and signing, would encourage more people to cycle off-road.

Public Footpaths (England & Wales)
Footpath and Bridleway
Cycling on footpaths is not a legal right, but many are entirely suitable and form good links. Opening them up to cyclists would enhance the network of motor-traffic free routes.

Unsurfaced highways shared with motor vehicles
Unsurfaced highway

Towpaths, canals and rivers
Towpath
Paths alongside canals and rivers can provide attractive and useful motor-traffic free routes for utility and recreational cycling.

Obstructions and 'out of repair' rights of way (England & Wales)
Obstructions-out-of-repair-RoW
Bridleways and byways need to be kept clear of obstructions and in a good state of repair, so that cyclists can enjoy their off-road rides.
