Cycle Routes and Signs

Cycle Lane

Cycle Routes

Off-road cycle path

These can be a dedicated cycle track or a shared use path. They are signposted and may have cycle markings on the ground. Shared use paths may or may not have markings showing separation of walking and cycling.

On-road cycle lane

Advisory lanes have a dashed line. Mandatory lanes have a solid line.

Drivers must not drive or park in mandatory cycle lanes and only in advisory cycle lanes if unavoidable.

Advisory cycle route

These are relatively quiet residential and country roads suitable for cycling. They are signposted to aid cyclists, but also to raise drivers’ awareness of cyclists.

Toucan crossing

These are provided where pedestrians and cyclists share a road crossing, with no formal separation. Cyclists can ride across, but should give way to pedestrians.

Visit www.cyclestreets.net to plan your cycle route.

Common Cycle Signs

  • Circular red signs give orders or are prohibitive.
  • Triangular signs are usually warnings.
  • Blue signs are advisory or for information.
