The riders route was first documented by Elizabeth Barrett in her 1993 book “The Icknield Way path, a guide for horse riders, cyclists and others”. ISBN 09516011 2 1. The route has changed since 1993 but it includes some interesting text. The out of print book is available from libraries.
The Icknield Way Association produces a walkers guide to the Icknield Way path, available with other information about the walkers route.

The overall leaflet maps were updated in 2012 with funding from Central Bedfordshire Council, however circumstances on the ground are always changing so the above electronic maps are able to be continuously updated. The riders route was added to Bing Maps, but is no longer able to be maintained due to changes by Bing
