Many hundreds of miles of minor road routes are also shown and links to signed cross-channel routes such as the Avenue Verte (London-Paris) are shown so that long distance route planning is also made easy. A bespoke key makes the map easy to understand at a glance. The UK's rail network and its myriad of stations is detailed, showing at a glance where and how cyclists can combine bike and train to get access to the country's best cycling.
As the scale of the map makes it suitable for planning rather than navigation, full details are given of where you can get larger scale maps of popular rides, such as the C2C, the Devon Coast to Coast and the Way of the Roses.
