Two cycle routes within the District form part of the Sustrans National Cycle Network. The Berkeley Vale to Gloucester Cathedral route is complete whilst the Stonehouse-Nailsworth route is complete between those two towns, via Stroud, but the links to the network require further work.
Stroud's Tourist Information Centre stocks maps showing cycling routes in the area.
