This map has been created in collaboration with community members from Rigside. It is part of a collection of eight codesigned active travel maps that highlight cycling and walking routes that are known to local people. These routes can be used for practical journeys, for leisure and for exercise.
The maps also include information on local services, amenities, and point of interest, as well as highlighting the benefits of active travel for your health and the environment. If you are a visitor, please respect the local community - use active travel, public transport or if you are driving, use designated parking areas. Take your litter home or dispose of it in bins provided.
