The best family scooter routes

  • 3 min read



Hello fellow adventurer’s!

If you’re looking for somewhere to scoot as a family then these scooter routes have been created especially for you.

Here are our favourites which includes our top ten from the National Cycle Route (with thanks to our friends at Sustrans).

All of these routes are flat, well surfaced and easily accessible to make scooting alongside your mini adventurer even easier. 

Our top ten routes from Sustrans: 

Swansea Bike Path

Following the wide curving sweep of Swansea Bay, this 6 mile traffic free route journeys along the former railway. It offers fantastic views as you scoot the coastal path and the option of stopping en-route at the award winning beaches of Langland and Caswell Bay. At the end you’ll reach the 19th century pier- an excellent spot for an ice-cream selfie!

Hastings and Bexhill Waterfront 

Ideal for beginners who want to scoot away from roads. The route runs alongside a railway line, linking two existing paths to complete a 5km route. With fantastic seaside views along the way.

Exe Valley Route, Exeter  

The 5 mile route follows the bank of the River Exe through Exeter’s historic and attractive Quay.

Aire Valley Towpath, Yorkshire 

This 17 mile route between Leeds and Bingley is for the more scooter savvy. It provides a wonderful opportunity to explore part of the longest canal in Britain. The route travels past beautiful countryside, shops and even a world heritage site.

Bristol to Bath Path 

The 13 mile path features a variety of sculptures and a working steam engine at the old train station at Bitton. Enjoy a pub lunch at Saltford, with wonderful views of the River Avon.

Derby Canal 

Starting near Derby city centre, this 13 mile route follows an attractive path alongside the River Derwent before turning south on the Derby Canal Path to the Trent and Mersey Canal at Swarkestone and onwards to Cloud Quarry.

Union Canal, Edinburgh, Scotland 

The canal stretches for 35 miles from Edinburgh to Falkirk. The scenery is industrial as the trail leaves the historic city, but soon opens out into a beautiful, scenic ride, passing over spectacular aqueducts and under pretty bridges, through the towns of Broxburn and Linlithgow with its palace, to Falkirk.

Cuckoo Trail, Polegate, East Sussex 

The 14 mile trail is one of the most popular family cycle rides in the South East and runs through a mixture of broadleaf woodland, open grassland and farmland. Along the way are dramatic sculptures and plenty of carved wooden seats to stop and take in your surroundings.

Nutbrook Trail, Heanor, Derbyshire 

The 10 mile trail takes you through the beautiful Shipley Country Park, which covers over 700 acres. The park has earned the Green Flag Award, the national standard for parks and green spaces in England and Wales, every year since 2008.

Consett and Sunderland Railway Path 

The full route is 26 miles, which mostly follows the line of the former Stanhope & Tyne Railway. Of course you dont have to scoot the full route if little legs prevent. This route into Sunderland takes you past the new Stadium of Light, along the riverside, through the marina and onto the beach at Roker.

Before you scoot off, that’s not all
