Cycling in Camden

Camden Cycle Journey Planner

Welcome to the CycleStreets cycle Journey Planner for Camden.

This is a development of the one that's been running in Cambridge for two years. The system not only offers you direct or quiet route options but will also show photos taken along the route - different depending on which direction you plan to travel.

The mapping is based on OpenStreetMap (OSM) which is a relatively new idea - a database of very detailed geographic data that was created by a community of volunteers and to which anyone can contribute. Camden is already quite thoroughly mapped on OSM, but you may be able to spot some missing links, especially where they are cycle or pedestrian-specific.

YOU can improve the OSM maps by adding to OpenStreetMap or giving direct feedback to the CycleStreets website's developers. At present CycleStreets doesn't take hills (or cobbles) into account. Improvements to deal with this known limitation in the Beta release will be in place soon.

At present there are not many photos on Camden. CycleStreets.net (see Cambridge.CycleStreets.net for inspiration). Please help by uploading yours. It will soon be possible to add videos as well.

One feature we hope that you will find useful - every time a route is planned it is given a unique URL (the link at the top of your browser, starting http:// ...). This can be used by you in future or sent to a friend who (for instance) is thinking of cycling to work but doesn't know the best route. It is also possible to view planned routes on mobile phones that have internet access.

A browsable London Cycle Map

Maps.camdencyclists.org.uk is a separate development by the Camden Cycling Campaign that offers a browsable library of London routes and cycling resources. It shows the London Cycle Network and other recommended cycle routes over a variety of different types of map (Google Map, Satellite, Terrain; OSM and OSM Cycle) with pop-up summary information on each route as well as cycle shops, cycle parking, hazards and more.

Google Streetview is included so you can pop-up movable views of the streets and the mapped features. A simple interface to the CycleStreets Journey Planner is included, so you can create and see CycleStreets journey plans directly on maps.camdencyclists.org.uk.

A secure cycle hangar would be preferable to a cycle stand. There is a lot of free space in the parking lot so it should be possible to install without issues.
