Telford A442 Please avoid after LEJOG fatality in 2010.
Telford A442 Please avoid after LEJOG fatality in 2010.
In the summer 2010 there was a fatality when a cyclist participating in a LEJOG sponsored ride was hit by a car whilst travelling on the A442 dual carriageway around Telford. The dual carriageway can be avoided by following the route of what was the A442 of forty years ago. No local cyclists would entertain the prospect of cycling on A442 dual carriageway, it’s cyclist that don’t know any different who need to be informed of the dangers. The alternate route is shown to the left with a full map and instructions HERE.
Thanks to Geoff Shinner, Sustrans Liaison Ranger at Telford and Wrekin for getting in touch with the route and instructions.
From a safety point of view I would personally avoid all dual carriageways where possible. There are so many much quieter and more pleasant roads to cycle on in the UK and a national network of Sutrans Cycle routes to explore. On all roads though accidents can and do happen so please take care regardless of the route you use.

If the routes do disappear, let me know but in the meantime you can always can always download the gpx files (below) and load onto your own mapping site. They do seem to take a while to load on slower broadband connections or when the bikemap site is busy. The site can be unavailable sometimes as well so try this link http://www.bikemap.net just to double check. If it is try again later.
NO MAPPING PROGRAM AND/OR GPS
It takes a while to load but for the complete route, end to end click here OR….
I have plotted the route on to http://www.bikemap.net You can view each day’s route & height profiles on an interactive map by clicking on the following links.

If you have your own route mapped onto an online mapping tool, doesn’t have to be bikemap, send me the link and I’ll add it to my list
Dave Barter’s route for his 2nd End-to-End. Good route that avoids the horrible A road through the Great Glen and instead takes in Arran and the Isle of Skye.
