Salford...It's Your Move!

Get walking, wheeling or cycling in Salford

From culture in the Quays, swanning round Salford Lad’s Club to browsing RHS Bridgewater. Salford has more than ever to see. Have you cycled Clifton Country Park or walked Worsley canal?

Walking, cycling and wheeling is for everyone. And it’s quicker, cheaper and easier than you might think.  

Try out new cycling and walking routes

We’re building the UK's largest active travel network.  

1,800 miles of safe, traffic-free cycling and walking routes. More than 2,400 new, safer road crossings. All linking up to public transport so you can get even further. 

Get planning!

It’s time to plan your route. You can leave the hard work to our journey planner. 

It’ll work out the best walking, wheeling or cycling route for you.  

And link you up with public transport if you want to go further. 

Hire a Starling Bank Bike

No bike? No problem. There’s plenty of Starling Bank Bikes across Manchester, Trafford and Salford.

Cycle to the shops, cycle to campus, cycle to your friend’s house. Or… just cycle for fun.

It’s a cheap, easy way to get around, and get back into the saddle.

Learn to ride or fix your bike

Whatever you’re looking to learn, we’ve got a course to fit. 

Build your confidence. Learn for the first time. Ride together as a family. Mend a puncture or fix your brakes. You don’t even need to own a bike to get started.

Start a bike library

Want to borrow a bike for free? Bike libraries are popping up all over Greater Manchester.

Any ‘not-for-profit’ can apply for funding and help to set up a bike library. Just drop a line to your local community organisers and tell them to get moving!

Make your move, together!

Want company? Joining a local walking or cycling group is a fun and friendly way to get active. Explore new places, meet new people and learn new skills.

Boss the school run

Why walk, wheel or cycle to school? Come on, it's much more fun!  

And a great, stress-free start to the day: 

✔️ Get fit, get happy, enjoy quality time with the kids. 

✔️ No need to find parking. Just cruise up to the school gates. 

✔️ A traffic-free, reliable route that takes the same time, every time. 

✔️ Cleaner air at the school gates. 

We’re doing our bit through School Streets, cycle training for students and youth ambassador programmes. 

Why not plan your route and give it a trial run?
