A bright cycling future for Greater Manchester
Our vision is to make cycling a convenient, attractive and safe travel choice for everyone, regardless of age or ability.
We’re working hard to build a bright cycling future for Greater Manchester.
Our aim is to increase the total number of journeys made by bike across the city region from 2% today to 10% by 2025, making it a mainstream, every day and aspirational form of transport.
We have made a great start, building the infrastructure and providing the support needed to encourage people to start cycling; segregated cycle lanes, Cycle Hubs and free skills training sessions are all helping turn Greater Manchester into a true cycle city.

The improvements have been partly funded by £42m from two Cycle City Ambition Grants, awarded by the Government, which last until 2018, and the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
