The University of Chester and the Chester Cycling Campaign have together produced a colourful graphical ‘tube map’ depicting routes for cyclists between key destinations in the city and beyond. Based on the design style of the famous London Underground map, cycle tube maps serve a similar purpose in giving cyclists a quick overview of the local cycle network.
Cycle tube maps are also a useful lobbying tool as the maps illustrate easily to local decision-makers where a desired network of infrastructure would be best placed and what the current quality of the network is. As shortcomings in the local network are readily visible on the maps, they can aid the planning of new cycle infrastructure.
The local Chester Cycle Network Tube Map shows off-road, quiet and segregated cycle routes in and around the city. University of Chester students will find it particularly useful in planning journeys between University sites, including Thornton Science Park, Kingsway and the main Parkgate campus.
There are broadly four types of routes detailed on the map: traffic free, segregated cycle paths, cycle routes on road and those for experienced cyclists only. Each type of route is colour coded for easy identification. The map is available as a free PDF download below. Printed copies of the map are also available to students at the University of Chester.
