This is the route I intend to use for the Cathedral Challenge rides while the south end of the Tipner Lake shared cycle path is closed. Note that you can follow the route in either direction.
At the time of my recce, there were no diversion signs.
My suggested route starts and finishes on the previous cycle path so - whichever direction you choose - you can continue on as normal.
There are some alternatives:
- Northern Parade (A3) has a shared pavement on the west side all the way from Matapan Road to Alex Way. The drop kerb at either end is a bit tricky to navigate, however.
- Instead of taking the loop through Alexandra Park, you can take a shorter route south of the Mountbatten centre. However, it means navigating through the car park.
