Cycling

Cyclists in Staffordshire have benefitted from a continued investment in recent years.

This has included new cycle lanes across the county, integrated into highway improvement schemes and as part of permissions for new housing and economic developments.

Cycle maps

We have produced a series of district and borough-wide cycle maps and guides.

Cycling journey planner

Our cycling journey planner allows you to plan your journey ahead by entering two locations which can either be road name, town or postcode. Then you have the options of choosing the fastest route, the most balanced route and the quietest route.

Reporting a problem

If you have a complaint or spot a problem on our cycle network you can report a fault online.

Cycle training

Sharing the road with other users is important for cyclist safety. Tips for cyclists and drivers can be found on the Department for Transport’s Think website. Bikeability, the national standard for cycle training, is also available free of charge to all school children. 

Cycle paths

A cyclist must exercise due care and attention at all times, and obey the Highway Code, including all traffic signs and traffic signals.

  • You can cycle on bridleways and byways but you must give way to walkers and horse riders
  • You can cycle on cycle tracks and bus lanes if the lane signs include a cycle symbol
  • You can cycle on canal towpaths
  • You cannot cycle on a pavement or a footpath unless there is a right to do so
  • You cannot cycle on open land without the permission of the landowner
