The CD-Rom titled BikeLeicester and produced by MediaWay contains over 500 photographs of the best cycling in Leicester with details of over 100 miles of planned routes. PC users can take a virtual tour of cycling routes in the city to plan bike rides and view mileage and local history.
Andy Salkeld, cycling officer at Leicester City Council, said: We are pleased to be involved with BikeLeicester. It is an innovative project which encourages people to get on their bikes and see Leicester.
Cycling is a great way to keep fit and have fun but it can be difficult to know where to go. With the BikeLeicester CD-Rom people can choose from a selection of routes, click a start point and then be guided on a turn by turn tour with photographs of a route around the city. Picnic points and snack stops are highlighted and the route instructions can be printed out to take on bike rides.
