Free Individualised Cycle Journey Route Planning Service

Brighton & Hove City Council is working in partnership with a number of local and national cycling groups to develop a series of personalised travel planning services. The first of which is free cycle route planning offered to individuals and organisations.

Individual cycle journey planning provides targeted information directly to the individuals in a friendly, fun and easy to understand way by experienced cyclists with first hand knowledge of the cycle network. Brighton & Hove District Cycling Club - Bricycles - is offering free individual cycle route planning for people wanting to cycle from A to B but are unsure of the best way to do it.

The service is particularly useful for people thinking about taking up cycling for the first time, or wishing to identify appropriate routes around the city with experienced cyclists. The kinds of routes Bricycles can help with include:

  • Cycling to work
  • Cycling for leisure
  • Identifying routes to schools and universities

Councillor Craig Turton, deputy chair of Brighton & Hoves’ environment committee, said: "The council supports Bricycles in their work of actively encouraging more people to take up cycling or try different routes."

Dean Spears, the city’s walking and cycling officer added: "We are fortunate in having several dedicated cycle groups in the city who play a crucial role in helping people to take up cycling for the first time".

The initiative has the potential to aid the development of educational and business travel plans and coincides with Brighton & Hove City Council’s recently acquired status of 2005 Transport Authority of the Year (awarded by the Centre for Transport Policy at Robert Gordon University). A key component of this status was the fact that the number of cycle journeys travelling into the city centre has increased by 47% since the year 2000.
