Active travel to work is good for:
There are some great routes for running, walking and cycling to Skylon Park including the superb, traffic free Greenway which provides a convenient link to many of the local residential areas.. Hereford City Centre and rail station are within a leisurely 30 minute walk and a 12 minute cycle ride.
The Great Western Way provides a spine of quiet routes from which new routes are planned in the coming months.
The Greenway is shown on the “Routes to Rotherwas Map” along with all other quiet and traffic free routes linking to the site. Use this map in conjunction with one of the journey planners to find a relaxing route to walk, run or cycle to work.
There are comprehensive route upgrades planned that will further improve accessibility to Skylon Park.
The HEZ quiet routes are a series of improvements to create a widely connected network through neighbouring residential areas and the Holme Lacy Road scheme will provide pedestrian and cycle improvements along the length of the road.
If you travel from the direction of the city centre, The Greenway is a traffic free path, which runs across the River Wye from St James and Bartonsham to Skylon Park and offers a quicker and more environmentally friendly alternative to the congestion of the A49.
The route is just under three miles long and is well surfaced making it suitable for cycling, walking and running.
If you would love to be able to cycle to work but live too far away, try a Park and Cycle. These car parks offer a convenient location for you to drive some of the journey, park for FREE and continue by bike or on foot.
