UK Bike Routing
Cycle.Travel is a UK bike directions map, designed to get you from A to B using the most cycle friendly route.
Enter a starting point and a destination (or just click on the map) and Cycle.Travel will show you a route with turn-by-turn directions. Where possible the route will take in available bike paths and avoid the roads with the most traffic. Probably the cleverest and most useful feature of Cycle.Travel is it actually uses real road traffic data to help you avoid the busiest roads.
Cycle.Travel also includes a number of other useful features. You can view an altitude chart of suggested routes, so you can see where those big climbs will be. You can view photos (from geograph.org.uk ) simple by clicking on a section of the route. You can also download a route to a GPS device (GPX & TCX formats supported).
