I've ridden some of your routes before but the way you joined up the bits I already knew with interesting tracks I didn't know made for a great ride. You have obviously put in a tremendous amount of hard work. It is by far the most comprehensive yet easy to read guide that I have ever seen anywhere.

Sorry, we have now
sold out of both our Forest of Dean & Wye Valley Cycling Guide and New Forest Cycling Guide.

We are open to new collaborative maps and guides with partners - see
here for details.

Near the Forest of Dean, you might be interested in the wonderful new
Wye Valley Greenway from the Chepstow outskirts to Tintern.


Cycling Guides takes a fresh approach to helping new, family, and leisure cyclists discover rewarding places to cycle. We also help more experienced cyclists get the most from areas that can be difficult to explore if you want to get off the beaten track and find places a bit more hidden away.

Our mission is to offer clear,
easy-to-use maps and reliable information so that you can enjoy a great day out, with the minimum of effort.

Our guides feature high quality
Ordnance Survey mapping, reliable step-by-step directions and comprehensive information on local amenities to help you get the very most from great places to explore by bike.

We research our guides thoroughly, riding all the routes and possible alternatives to make sure every detail is accurate. We ensure that cycling is permitted on all sections.

If you have a bit more adventure in mind we unravel the best routes in areas where finding these is not always straightforward - such as the Forest of Dean.

There are many cheap and free maps out there - and we have seen many people lost and confused using them! Use ours and make the most of your precious holidays and days out!


What else do our guides offer?

  • They are waterproof and tear-proof - printed on tough plastic that feels like high quality paper. Why should a map fall apart after a shower or a gust of wind?
  • Clear step-by-step directions are provided for a number of rides, plus many more miles of other tried and tested rewarding routes are shown
  • They are family friendly. You can plan your day out and see what's coming up!
  • Places to eat, drink and do, within easy reach of the rides
  • Tips and help in finding your way
Having seen quite a few cycling maps of the Forest, we are particularly impressed with this design and like the feature of being able to fold the map in a certain way to see a larger area - it’s durable, clear and easy to use and the range of trails available near to Avon Tyrrell is a fantastic resource now available to our guests.
