We have come up with a variety of local routes which range between 6-16 miles and they offer a mix of traffic free tarmac, off road bumpier bits and short sections on roads so take a look. We have also highlighted some shorter loops around Western Park and out along Rampton Road, you can view the shorter routes on the map in the resources see here.

Please take care whilst cycling around the site and be aware of construction traffic and some uneven surfaces.

 

Northstowe Family Route 1

6.5 miles

Predominantly traffic free tarmac with a short section on the road at Oakington. A short section off road, which can be avoided by continuing straight on at St Michaels Church, turning right at the crossroads on Rampton Road and then left at Magdalene Close, where the route rejoins at the playpark. A top spot for a picnic!
