Wheely Down Road, near me on the South Downs, is a popular cycling route - a wonderful fast descent off the hilltops into the Meon valley. I have not attempted to wheelie down Wheely Down.

I know of two roads named after local cyclists, Hugh Porter Way , Wolverhampton leads to the Aldersley Cycle Track, Bufton Close in Telford is named after Graham Bufton

There's the Beryl Burton Cycleway in Harrogate, of course.

Here in Huddersfield, there is a Tandem Way, which leads to the Tandem Industrial Park.

On my walk today (i'm awaiting delivery of a new wheel to get back on the bike :( ), i passed The Ride which runs off Champion Road in the Warmley Brook area of east Brizzle. :D
