Plymouth’s Strategic Cycle Network

Locally we're committed to our Strategic Cycle Network (SCN) - a plan of cycle routes, paths and lanes that we aim to create in the city that's suitable for cyclists of all levels.

The network is colour-coded with the faster purple routes (which involve dealing with traffic) for experienced cyclists and the slower but safer green routes for less experienced and leisure cyclists and children. Where the purple and green routes meet they'll be developed so that they're suitable for all cyclists.

As part of the Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan we've developed a new aspirational Strategic Cycle Network (SCN).
