There is a growing network of cycle routes in Aldershot and Farnborough.
Local cycling and walking improvement plan
We want to make it easier and safer for our residents to walk and cycle, and we are working with Hampshire County Council to identify improvements that could be made to our road networks and town centres.
You can currently give your feedback on a proposed Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan for Rushmoor, by going to Hampshire County Council's consultation page.
The closing date for responses is Sunday 18, September.
