Cycling and Walking

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 or download it.

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.
