Cycling in the West Midlands

Starley Network

Transport for West Midlands and Local Authorities have worked together to develop an extensive cycling and walking network, known as the Starley Network – named after the Coventry-based Starley family, widely considered to be the innovators of the modern cycle. The Starley Network pulls together existing routes and towpaths, proposed new cycling infrastructure, and new pop-up lanes funded through the Active Travel Fund.

Discover more about the Starley Network and plan a commute or leisure ride with local cycling maps available to download at West Midlands Network.
