Stockport...It's Your Move!

Get walking, wheeling or cycling in Stockport

Foodie Fridays, award-winning restaurants, a thriving microbrewery scene… there’s something special in the air in Stockport.

We’ve improved walking and cycling links through the most historic parts of the town centre and St Petersgate.

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. 

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.

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?
