Inclusive cycling and walking


Here at TfGM, we want to make cycling and walking as accessible as possible.

We know that lots of people with disabilities already cycle and walk but know there is scope to help many more do so.

At TfGM, we are working hard to help provide the right conditions around Greater Manchester for all people to enjoy the fantastic benefits that cycling and walking provides.

Disabled people should be able to cycle and walk wherever and whenever they want without physical or attitudinal barriers stopping that.

There is still a long way to go until all cycling and walking routes and facilities are inclusive and accessible, but we are doing our bit to transform the common perceptions of what cyclists and walkers look like and provide suitable infrastructure to match via the Bee Network.

We have some fantastic organisations in Greater Manchester that help provide access to adapted bicycles for those that need the resources and equipment. Please see the resources section, below, for more information on how to access these.
