Cultural Routes

New cultural trails

Pedalling Culture, together with Milton Keynes Council, is launching five brand new culture trails that form the Grand Tour, to everyone from, members of walking groups and local cycling clubs, to those just interested in getting out and about.

The trails encompass cultural venues, public art, and points of heritage interest along the way, and range from 5 to 10 miles in distance.

Based around a central Grand Tour the trails will enable everyone to join a circular route, before they branch off to explore other avenues in more detail.

Through mix and match you can pick which trails you want to do and increase your distance in multiples of 5 miles.

View the five routes that make up the Grand Tour here.

More about Cultural Routes

With all the new developments taking place across the city, we are very much aware that our city’s residents will potentially be facing a 57% increase in journey time during peak hours! As there is limited scope for increasing our road capacity, we are encouraging the use of our Redway network  and leisure routes as much as possible, not only will using these routes, by walking or cycling, be a more sustainable way to travel, the scenery will be much nicer.

Better signage and way finding throughout the Redway network is being developed to provide better navigation to our cultural destinations. These improvements are designed to help residents, and visitors to Milton Keynes, understand the green and sustainable transport options available to them.

Through social media, users of the Redway network can interact with Pedalling Culture by sharing photos and feedback on their experience on their journeys to cultural venues, attractions and art spots.

We worked with Milton Keynes Council to develop a new Redway map which features every cultural venue in Milton Keynes and the accessibility to these via the Redway routes. In May 2018 this map was published and distributed by Milton Keynes Council to every household in the area.
