Loughborough Area

FREE Cycling Map No. 2
The busy market town of Loughborough has an excellent network of cycle paths and routes connecting the town with its railway station, university and college as well as routes to local schools and workplaces.
Loughborough's town centre plays host to a street market, which dates back to 1221, and several green spaces including Queen's Park with its famous Carillon. The park's cycle paths lead to Charnwood Museum, a great place to delve into local history.
The town lies on the edge of Charnwood Forest. The rocky hills of the area include Beacon Hill, formed after a volcanic eruption 560 million years ago, making them older than the Himalayas. This hilly area provides some challenging road riding, with fantastic views and many villages to choose from for a rest stop.
Bradgate Park, well known for being the home of Lady Jane Grey, the 'Nine Days Queen', has excellent cycle paths - flat and hard surfaced routes for all the family.
