Cycling and Walking in Cirencester

Cirencester’s Active Travel Map, is your guide to walking and cycling in and around Cirencester with useful information and detailed routes.

The maps in the guide grade the road network according to how easy it is for cycling and show places of interest suitable for day trips on foot or by bike. Use the maps to see whether walking or cycling could be a practical alternative for your journey.

You can pick up a copy of the guide from various outlets including our Local Information Centre, the Visitor Information Centre and the Gateway Centre. 

This guide would not have been possible without our sponsors, and Cirencester Town Council would like to give special thanks to Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Trust, the Environmental Dimension Partnership and Cirencester College for their support in realising this community project. 


About the Guide

Local cycle and walking enthusiasts in the community worked with the Cheltenham & Tewkesbury Cycle Campaign to audit the town and surrounding area’s path and cycle ways and plotted all the routes on easy to use maps.

Andre Curtis and John Franklin from the Cheltenham & Tewkesbury Cycling Campaign gave their free time and expertise to develop this map. “We wanted to help because the Cirencester area is such a great place for cyclists and walkers to explore” says Andre “there are so many interesting sights to see that would be easy to miss when travelling by car. Cirencester is a compact town so most places are easy to reach by bike.”The Cirencester-based Environmental Dimension Partnership (EDP) stepped in to sponsor the printing, meaning the maps can be distributed further afield. Ben Rosedale of EDP commented: “As a local company that promotes sustainable development, we are very pleased to contribute to a project that is so environmentally friendly and aims to reduce dependency on cars.”
