Cyclestreets.net is a brilliant little website for bicyclists. Just enter where you are and where you want to go and it will take you a proper cyclists route, tell you the distance, how quiet or otherwiseit will be and how many calories you will burn completing it.
This is extraordinary. You can actually choose a route to avoid unnecessary hills. Excellent for the part-time cyclist!

Fantastic, friendly service. Came in for last minute, much needed brake pads fitting. Adam fitted me in straight away, also fixed my gears meaning I had use of all gears (first time in a while!) on next days 50 mile ride. Thankyou!!

Bike had been stored for several years; took it to The Bike Shop where it was given a health check there and then and advice given on parts that would need changing in due course. Fast, friendly and professional - couldn't ask for any better service. Very highly recommended.
