National Cycle Network (NCN), Route 41, known as the 'Lias Line' runs through the county between Rugby, Long Itchington and Leamington Spa then onward west towards the Grand Union canal. It was identified as very poor when Sustrans reviewed the National Cycle Network. The 'Paths for Everyone' review found that much of the off-road sections were overgrown with a poor surface. It suffers from poor access points and features gradients that do not meet current standards. Furthermore, the existing path will be severed by HS2.
When complete, around 4.0km of on-road provision between Offchurch Greenway and Long Itchington will be replaced with very good off-road track, improving the safety and accessibility of the route. The route will also from part of Warwickshire's longest traffic-free greenway and provide a mix of leisure and commuter activity.
The improvements have been made possible thanks to a £20m funding package from the Department of Transport to improve the National Cycle Network
