Cycling at country parks

​Northamptonshire County Council’s award-winning country parks each have their own unique character and something to offer for everyone. Brixworth Country Park and the Brampton Valley Way offer superb car free cycling routes.

​Brampton Valley Way

Arguably the jewel of Northamptonshire’s leisure cycling routes, this 14 mile linear route linking Northampton with Market Harborough runs along a former rail line and passes through 2 tunnels (good lights recommended).  It showcases beautifully the surrounding countryside and wildlife and, according to the Sustrans website, it is one of the longest former railway line cycle tracks in the country – a must!

Visit our Country Parks section for more details about the Brampton Valley Way.

​Brixworth Country Park

Starting at Brixworth Country Park, take in the 7 mile circular trail around Pitsford Reservoir just to the north of Northampton - a lovely destination for a family trip out. For those wishing to cycle further afield, the nearby Brampton Valley Way can be reached by bike via Merry Tom Lane. Alternatively, use this route to cycle from Northampton to the reservoir. Pitsford Cycles at Brixworth Country Park caters for all your cycling needs from cycle hire to sale and repair.
