What is a cycle route?
A cycle route is a medium or long distance, continuous (without interruption, including in cities), signposted and safe cycle route.
Cycle routes use all types of safe routes, including greenways.
What is a greenway?
The Greenway is "a road exclusively reserved for non-motorised vehicles, pedestrians and horse riders" (Highway Code). It is accessible to as many people as possible, without any particular physical requirements. Pedestrians, cyclists, people with reduced mobility, rollerbladers, etc. use it for leisure, tourism and daily travel.
Greenways are built on the right-of-way of disused railway lines, waterway banks, forest tracks, rural roads, etc.
