What tips can folk recommend for planning a route? My current cycle commute is the same as my drive commute, about 12 miles. I've been looking at maps, online and off, and am certain there is a better route to take, and some of it would be off road, which is a bonus! I can't get time off to trial it, so if I were to go with it, it would be a live run. What should I be looking out for on off-road routes?
