National Cycle Route 21 (or NCR 21) is part of the United Kingdom's National Cycle Network. It runs from Greenwich in South-East London south to Crawley, then east to Groombridge and south to Eastbourne, with a short final loop northwards again to its end at Pevensey.
The route is approximately 150 km (93 miles) long. Several sections are not suitable for road bikes.
- National Cycle Route 4 at Greenwich which is the route's start.
- National Cycle Route 1 at Greenwich is a few hundred metres from the route's start.
- National Cycle Route 2 at Polegate and at Pevensey at the route's finish.
- National Cycle Route 20 at Crawley.
The route forms much of the English section of the Avenue Verte, a planned long-distance cycle route linking London and Paris.

“By a route obscure and lonely,
Haunted by ill angels only,
Where an eidolon, named Night,
On a black throne reigns upright,
I have reached these lands but newly
From an ultimate dim Thule
From a wild weird clime that lieth, sublime,
Out of spaceout of time.”
—Edgar Allan Poe (18091849)
“Universal suffrage should rest upon universal education. To this end, liberal and permanent provision should be made for the support of free schools by the State governments, and, if need be, supplemented by legitimate aid from national authority.”
