You’ll now get routed along fewer hard-to-ride bridleways when planning rides

In many countries, bridleways can be tricky to ride. Deep sand, frequent horse traffic and unclear regulations mean they’re best avoided, whether you ride a mountain, gravel, road or touring bike. That’s why we’ve updated our routing algorithm to route you around bridleways without substantially increasing the length of your ride. 

*These changes don’t apply to the UK. We respect the specific designations per country and take into account the ride-ability of specific types of roads, streets and paths. In the UK, bridleway designations are usually suitable for mountain biking or gravel rides, so we’ll continue to route you along them as long as they remain ride-able. 

Get routed along quieter, safer roads thanks to the latest routing improvement (UK and Italy)

In both the UK and Italy, any bike rides you plan will now favor quieter, safer roads. Previously, your route may have taken you along A-roads or dual carriageways. These segments may have been unsettling for many riders due to the speed and volume of traffic. To fix this, we’ve improved our routing in the UK and Italy to favor B-roads and quieter streets with slower moving traffic.
