Details of Coventry's new £6.9m cycle network are set to be made public.

Cycle Coventry is a joint venture between the city council and Centro that will upgrade existing routes and create new ones over three years.

The transport authority said the aim was to "link busy residential areas to key employment and education hubs".

The funding has come from the Department for Transport. Olympic silver medallist Lizzie Armitstead will be at the launch in Broadgate later.

Residents will be given detailed cycle maps of the routes as well as cycle training and road safety information.

The University of Warwick, University Hospital Coventry and the Ricoh Arena are among the places that will be connected to the city centre by the cycle routes.

The Labour-led council secured £3.5m from the Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF) for the scheme.

The other £3.4m has come from Centro's Smart Network, Smarter Choices project which was given £50m from the LSTF to carry out improvements across the West Midlands.
