Local cycle Routes promoted by Three Rivers District Council
The Ebury Way is an important local traffic-free path for cyclists, walkers, and horse-riders. The track uses the old Ebury Railway embankment to cross the Colne, Chess and Gade rivers as well as the Grand Union Canal. Cycling is permitted along the whole length but horse-riders are restricted to the eastern part between Moor Lane Crossing and Rickmansworth.
The Ebury Way helps provide a traffic-free part of the National Cycle Network (NCN) Route 6 from London Paddington to Keswick, via Watford, Luton, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Market Harborough, Leicester, Derby, Nottingham, Worksop, Sheffield, Manchester, Blackburn, Preston, Lancaster, Kendal and Windermere.

This cycle track created in 2009 connects St Clement Danes School and the edge of Chorleywood with Station Approach using a quiet service road and shared footway. This route enables cyclists and walkers to easily travel between the village centre, the station and the school - without using busy Green Street.
The cycle route provides a clearly signed link on 0quieter roads to between Maple Cross, Mill End and Rickmansworth avoiding main roads.
Three Rivers Cycling Strategy
The District Council has developed and promoted its Cycling Strategy since 1981 with visible success in creating and improving the cycle routes it promotes across the Three Rivers District.
Recent projects include the upgrades to the Grand Union Canal towpath in partnership with other local authorities and the Canal and River Trust, and the South Way cycleway.
This towpath now provides a level traffic-free route connecting Croxley Green, West Watford, Hunton Bridge, Kings Langley and Nash Mills with a wider, well promoted route.
The South Way Cycleway connects the improved towpath with Abbots Langley, Leavesden and into Garston on a nearly traffic-free shared footway and bridleway.
