And more is on the way!
Hire a bike
No bike? No problem. There’s plenty of cycle hire 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
Cheaper than the car, faster than your feet. Cycling’s for everyone.
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.
