An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), it’s not surprising that cycling in Cannock Chase is a fairly blissful activity. A vast expanse of woodlands, plantations and heathland, you can pedal for miles on lanes and bridleways suitable for touring bikes. Thanks to its tracks, it offers plenty of easy cycling options for families whilst dedicated roadies can enjoy straight roads linking village to village. 


You can choose cycle routes in Cannock Chase that begin at one of the two visitor centres, any one of the number of car parks dotted around or a settlement on the Chase’s perimeter. Cannock and Rugeley are the largest and have plenty of facilities and shops so you can stock up your bar bag. Thanks to the numerous roads and lanes criss-crossing the AONB, you can thoroughly explore the beautiful landscape and its cultural history from the Castle Ring Iron Age fort in the south east to the epic Shugborough Park in the north west.
