New cycle maps make bike journeys easy

by Jonathan Kearney

As the summer approaches – and with fuel prices and the cost of living on the rise – now is the perfect time to consider leaving the car at home and taking more journeys on foot and by bike.

An up-to-date cycle map of the borough is now available to help you plan cycle friendly routes, whether it’s a short commute to work or a leisurely Sunday morning cycle!

Provided by the Merseyside Road Safety Partnership, the map highlights numerous safe cycling and walking options throughout the borough. You can find the map here.

There are many benefits to walking or cycling instead of using a car.

It’s better for the environment, better for your health and saves you money.

Walking and cycling can help improve your mental health and wellbeing and help reduce the risk of things like type 2 diabetes.

You can find more information about the Liverpool City Region Active Travel campaign, with information about walking and cycling in the borough, on the Merseytravel website.
