Sustrans has this week published cycle maps of Northern Ireland, the last four in a 53-map series of pocket guides. This is the completion of a series of cycle maps to cover the whole of the UK, the first such series to be completed since the 1950s. 

Together the maps cover all 14,000 miles of National Cycle Network, as well as other major routes such as the London Cycle Superhighways, and over 100 recommended day rides, as well as inset maps of towns and city centres.

Martyn Brunt, head of mapping at Sustrans said: “Our new Pocket Map series covers all National Cycle Routes and major routes, and we’re updating them all the time as new routes are added.”

“We’ve been working on the maps since 2012, starting on the South coast of England and working northwards to Scotland. Northern Ireland and London were the last maps which complete the series.”

The only similar series of maps came out in the 1950s, long before Sustrans National Cycle Network began in 1995.

Sustrans has so far sold 85,000 copies of maps in The Pocket Map series. Cornwall is the best-selling map having been reprinted three times since it was first launched. Other top-sellers include Dorset Downs, Kent, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, the Peak District, Severn and Thames, South West Wales, Yorkshire Wolds and York and the North Yorkshire Moors.
