The Cycle Brentwood team has put a lot of effort into mapping out a network of cycle routes across the borough.
These routes have, wherever possible, avoided busy roads and have used cycle paths, off-road tracks and quiet roads to offer safe cycling for transport and leisure. On this page, you can:
View an interactive map of the proposed cycle network.
Access maps, descriptions and gpx files of route segments
See our suggestions for local leisure rides, with maps, descriptions and gpx files
Suggest your own routes

Our eventual goal is to sign and publish each part of the network, but getting the various permissions to use many route sections is a slow process.
We are therefore working on a section-by-section basis and you’ll be able to find details of each of these below:
Developing, signing and publishing routes will be a slow process, but in the meantime there are plenty of great, predominantly off-road rides around Brentwood and surrounding areas.
We list some of these below, with links to route sheets that include a map and directions. If you use a GPS or smartphone to help you navigate, you can also download a gpx file of each route.
There are very few designated cycle paths around Brentwood and those that exist aren’t joined up to form contiguous routes that can be used for commuting or leisure.
The Cycle Brentwood team recognise that providing safe, relatively traffic-free routes is essential if we are to encourage more cycling within the borough.
