Mid Argyll Cycling
Client: Cycling UK
Merritt Cartographic was commissioned by Cycling UK to create this promotional map and leaflet highlighting their recommended cycling routes through the mid-argyll region of Scotland.
Working with colleagues at the Ardrishaig Bothy (a collaboration between Cycling UK and Scottish Canals), Merritt Cartographic produced this document for those looking to explore the area by bicycle. Using a clean and relatively simple map design, which highlights the region's topography, it is hoped that this map and leaflet will incentivise more people visiting the region to explore the area on two wheels by promoting cycle-friendly routes and facilities. However, this map isn't just for tourists, the staff and volunteers at the Ardrishaig Bothy are keen to promote cycling amongst their local community. Another of the aims of this leaflet was to inspire local people to leave their cars at home and make some of their everyday and/or leisure journeys by bike too.
