There is a growing network of cycle routes in Aldershot and Farnborough.

Cycle routes in Aldershot and Farnborough

There is a network of on-road and off-road cycle routes running through Aldershot and Farnborough.

The addition of a link between the Cove Brook Greenway cycle path at the Hawley Bridge end and the cycleways around the Farnborough Road and the Blackwater Valley  means you can cycle a complete loop around Farnborough on cycle routes.

The Cove Brook cycle route (funded by Sustrans, TAG environmental fund, and Veolia Environmental Trust) is three kilometres long and provides a valuable off-road link to 14 local schools (4500 pupils) and commuter route for those travelling from the north of the borough into the town centre.

Cycling restriction between North Camp station and Hollybush Lakes

The Blackwater Valley path section between North Camp station and Hollybush Lakes is now closed off with an alternative diversionary route in place.

There are signs up to highlight this restriction.
