Telford A442 Please avoid after LEJOG fatality in 2010.

Telford A442 avoidance route

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.

GPS WAYPOINTS & ONLINE ROUTE MAPS

I’ve included some links on the mapping and GPS options we used as well as what is available today and what I now use. This is included on the Equipment page

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….

You can download a copy of our LEJOG route in a format that can be loaded onto a mapping program such as memory map, or a GPS.

NOTE: I have had reports of day 2 and day 3 not working on some GPS units, therefore John Speedie has kindly made available his files (completed LEJOG June 2010)  for those days as an alternative to mine above. Download them by right clicking on following links: John D2 Fowey-Exeter gpx     John D3 Exeter-Clevdn gpx   Thanks John

Adam Evans has provided fixed files for Day 2 and Day 3 and I have updated the zip file above. So hopefully no more problems.
