Decorative Cycle Paths from NatraTex
NatraTex manufacture and supply a broad range of coloured asphalt surfacing for decorative cycle paths. Our two main product brands – NatraTex Colour and Natratex Cotswold – are ideal for cycle path surfacing. The green, red and blue colours are often chosen because they distinguish the cycling route as separate from the road and pavement. They are an effective way to separate bicycles from motor vehicles and pedestrians. This is an important factor in road safety.
Planning Decorative Cycle Paths
There are no rules regarding coloured surfacing in this context, and you will find a wide collection of hues and tones within the colour palette we offer.
Mandatory Cycle Lanes run along our road network. They are separated very clearly by an unbroken white painted line. Motor vehicles must not enter or park in them and using a distinctive colour will reinforce the visibility of the lane to all road users while acting as a deterrent to these actions.
However, if your location requires a more subtle finish, our NatraTex range provides neutral decorative cycle paths which can blend in with their surroundings. Perfect for towns, cities and areas of historic importance where planning laws are more stringent and require a sympathetic colour scheme.
Across the United Kingdom the National Cycle Network diverts cyclists away from busy roads. These cycle paths run along park footpaths and canal tow paths. They often provide a quicker and more pleasant journey for the recreational cyclist and commuter alike.
NatraTex has coloured paving solutions for all types of decorative cycle paths. Our products deliver:
- A range of Mix Designs to suit almost all situations, including porous and permeable options
- A big choice of colours
- Delivered hot and ready for working at your location
- Small quantities are available as NatraTex ColdLay for maintenance

Decorative Cycle Paths for Sustainable Transport
In an era of rapid climate change, society is having to rethink its use of energy and carbon emissions. Having a good cycling infrastructure to encourage people to opt for pedal power over the combustion engine is one way to do this. In a world of traffic congestion, creating a cycling network in and around urban areas is a fundamental part of town and transport planning.
NatraTex has the surfacing materials to help those responsible for designing our transportation system to incorporate the cyclist and create innovative solutions which can have positive impacts on the future shape of our towns and cities, the economy, the environment and climate change, and the quality of life.
The Benefits of Decorative Cycle Paths
Decorative cycle paths create an environment which is safe for people of all ages to go and ride their bikes. Inspired by the successes of British Cycling at the recent Olympic Games and the likes of Sir Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas providing our nation with a hat trick of Tour de France winners. More and more people are seeing cycling as a great way to get from A to B, improve their health, and as a recreational activity with family and friends. Here at NatraTex, we are delighted to be able to support this through our range of high quality synthetically bound asphalt surfacing.
