Please note: the current version of the website is now at CYCLEMALVERN.UK These pages will stay here for now, but aren’t being updated. See new general routes page or specific Malvern to Worcester route page.

On this page: existing provision – paths and bridges, Malvern on the national cycle network, possible future bike routes (currently Malvern to Worcester, Malvern to Upton).

If you want to find out about routes to ride on the Hills or other leisure trails, see MalvernTrail.

Cycle Paths

So far in Malvern:

  • A shared path crosses Link Common from the railway station to Pickersleigh Road. At summer 2020 this has shrunk to a narrow path in places, due to surface maintenance, so do be careful of passing pedestrians.
  • A separated track alongside Townsend Way/North End Lane. Rather spoilt by all the road junctions, with no priority for cyclists. There is now a connection across Worcester Road, near the Newland roundabout.
  • The North End Lane (western end) of the above is part of NCN Route 46, as below. This part of NCN46 extends largely on road via Orford Way, Sherrards Green Road and Pound Bank Road to near a pedestrian signalled crossing at Barnards Green, aiding crossing over to Geraldine Road, Chase School and the Science Park.

See Route Planning below for possible future connections.

Cycle and pedestrian bridges

National Cycle Network

See the Network on Ordnance Survey maps. Here’s the key for reference:

Key to NCN map

NCN Route 46 from Abergavenny to Hereford should be extended ultimately via Malvern and on to Worcester. Route 46 from Worcester to Droitwich and Bromsgrove is already on the map.

The bits of NCN cycle route currently in Malvern have been renumbered to 46, instead of route 45. OS Maps link – if necessary, use the map layer button to select National Cycle Network.

Original proposals from Sustrans for National Cycle Network route 45 for the area (Worcester to Gloucester) have been changed, and it will now link Stourport , Droitwich, Worcester, Tewkesbury and Gloucester.
