Stratford Greenway Cycletrack

Stratford-upon-Avon is better known for it’s famous Bard, but if all that culture’s a bit much then you can get out for an easy cycle (or run as I did) before attending a play.

There are two carriages converted into cafes (Carriages Cafe) at the start and midpoint of the route, as well as numerous parking options. There’s your usual bike hire option at Stratford as well, so this is well suited to doing on a whim, if you’ve travelled by rail or if you really can’t be arsed with bike carriers.

Once you find the starting location (using the map to the right) then the cycletrack really is foolproof to follow. Just keep in mind how far you want to travel, and remember that you need to return (yes, people do forget about that!) as the distance given is one way.

You can also easily walk to the start from the centre of Stratford.
