Cycle routes are principally indicated by signs and markings. They may be either on the road or on footpaths. When cycle routes are on footpaths they are either shared with or segregated from pedestrians, or on specially designated cycle paths.
Sustrans Route 1, part of the National Cycle Network, passes through the area. We have developed a network of 13 other enjoyable routes, from six miles to 50 miles in length.
The council also produces the Scunthorpe Town and Rural North Lincolnshire Cycle Map. The map is available to download:
