    I’ve mentioned / requested things like this before, and there are two or three that I know of that do this, but this: http://www.mapmyfitness.com/maps/auto_route/ is the best implementation I’ve found for UK use at least. Also, that link takes you directly to the generator without needing to register. 🙂

    Enter a start point and a distance and get a loop generated for you. Generally it needs a little checking / tweaking to make sure it hasn’t taken you down towpaths or that type of thing, but very useful. I use it with http://ridewithgps.com to get a nice loop to transfer to the Garmin. Get involved.

    Just tried it. All a-roads and no way to tell it to avoid them.

    A lot of quite nasty A roads, but with a cheeky section of footpath that is currently pretty much unrideable!

    EDIT: gave it a second go; while it’s not illegal to cycle on the A14, it’s not something I would choose to do….

    Awful routes suggested here too
    Heavily trafficked fast a roads – no thanks

    Ok ok, try this instead – still the odd quirk of trying to take you down bridlepaths, but a more user friendly option!
