Cycle City

A bright cycling future for Greater Manchester

Bike LifeOur 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 so far have included:

The next steps are:

  • A further 45km of new or improved cycle lanes to be completed by 2018.
  • Four Cycle Friendly District Centres to focus investment on cycle routes and parking.
  • Build more cycle and ride facilities and transport interchanges.

Bike LifeThe 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.
