National Cycle Network
The Trans Pennine Trail forms a key part of the National Cycle Network across the North of England. The full network has been developed and co-ordinated by the UK's leading sustainable transport charity Sustrans.
To date the National Cycle Network provides over 12,000 miles of walking and cycle routes on traffic-free paths, quiet lanes and traffic-calmed roads, and 75% of the UK population lives within two miles of a route! The Network is well signed. It connects towns and villages, countryside and coast throughout the UK.
So, even if you are not on the TPT, if you're looking to walk or cycle to work, the shops, school, railway station, or just spend some much needed leisure time walking or cycling then why not discover your nearest National Cycle Network route?
