Route Leaflets

Cyclesolihull has produced a series of nearly 50 self-guided ride leaflets which are a great way of getting out on your bike. All use relatively quiet roads and visit attractive countryside. Many of them feature places of interest on route. The rides are between 5 and 25 miles long so, depending on your pace, they will take between 1 to 3 hours when cycled non-stop - it is surprising how far you can go in a relatively short time! However if you fancy a more leisurely ride most of them show en-route pubs and cafes where you can stop for a drink and make the ride into a pleasant half-day or evening ride.

These routes form the basis of the Sunday Cycle Rides, the Evening Explorer, Taster and Saturday Xtra rides.

You can now download most of the routes in pdf format using the links below.
