Cycle Infrastructure Design (Local Transport Note 2/08, Department of Transport)
Joint guidance between the Scottish Executive, Welsh Assembly Government and the Department of Transport. Primarily aimed at local authority transport practitioners, it brings together and updates previously available guidance on on-road and off-road cycling provision into a single, comprehensive design guide.

Cycle Infrastructure: Design Guidance and Best Practice (SEStran)
Design and best practice guidance to help local authorities, developers and others involved in providing new cycling infrastructure, whether specifically for cycling or for taking cycling into account for all forms of transportation infrastructure. The guidance provides basic information about cycle auditing and monitoring that can be used to help identify measures to improve a particular infrastructure scheme, a route or part of a network for cycling based on five key principles – coherence, directness, attractiveness, safety and comfort. It also provides basic information about surfaces for both on-road and off-road cycle infrastructure provision.

Making Ways for the Bicycle (Sustrans)
A definitive guide to the construction of traffic-free, off-road paths. It has now been superseded by the National Cycle Network Guidelines and Practical Details and the Connect 2 Greenway Design Guide. However, it is still very valuable information resource.

National Cycle Network Guidelines and Practical Details (Sustrans)
Comprehensive guidance and detail set on a design philosophy and criteria for the National Cycle Network that is equally suitable for on-road cycling and off-road cycling infrastructure at a regional and local level.
