Routes to Ride aims to get bikers sharing

Aside from the odd sharp evening, we’re finally pretty much free and clear of that nasty winter weather now – and what better way to celebrate than to take a celebratory run around over the weekend?

Of course, you’ve probably got plenty of favourite routes already in your head but a new online Carole Nash Routes to Ride could soon see you enjoying some stunning new scenery and even more testing tarmac.

Over the Spring Bank Holiday, Carole Nash launched its Routes to Ride initiative – a comprehensive guide to biking routes all over Britain. The site has 39 pre-configured routes, all with detailed descriptions that bring the route to life, but customers will be invited to submit their own routes to share and compare.

The site is designed especially for riders to select a route that’s right for them by searching several variables. Users can narrow down the potential rides by region, difficulty, distance and route type. If you have a couple of hours to spare for a quick coastal jaunt then you’re covered but it’s just as easy to discover an absolute trek for those with the entire weekend to kill.

Once you’ve selected your route, you’ll be presented with a comprehensive written guide to making the best of it – with route descriptions, road maps and a potted history of landmark points on the route. If you’re feeling a little adventurous after finishing the route there are even suggestions for how best to extend your journey to take in a little bit more of what the UK’s best biking routes have to offer.
