Cycling is a fun, safe and healthy activity the whole family can enjoy

Chelmsford has a superb cycling network and many routes to choose from. Building on the excitement and inspiration of the Tour De France, the Council is keen to encourage more people to get into cycling and is supporting various initiatives to provide a safe cycling environment and improved facilities.
