This interactive map came out of conversations with children and older cyclists. It shows routes that are car-free, protected or low-traffic, and walking-only.

You can use it to work out safe cycling routes to key places in the city, such as schools and hospitals.

It was developed by local cycling enthusiasts including Tom Green, Emily Kerr, Hannah Kirby and Danny Yee.
