Cycling Around Reading

Information if you travel by bike....


Reading has its very own bike hire scheme, Readybike. You can pick up a bike at 29 dockingReadyBike_web_small.JPG stations throughout the town. Nowhere in the town centre is more than 30 minutes cycle.

Reading is on several of the UK's Sustrans Routes (routes 4, 5 and 23) linking the town with Oxford, Newbury and Basingstoke. 

Reading Borough Council produces a useful map of the town's recommended cycle routes to get you around once you are here. 

There is good (but very well used) cycle parking in the town centre.
