Cycling in Stockport

From off-road tracks at the edge of the Peak District National Park to serious commuting along the A6 via quiet rides along the Middlewood Way or Trans Pennine Trail and local trips without the car, cycling can be the whole or part of your journey in Stockport.

Whatever your ability, there are places to cycle in Stockport for both utility and leisure. Stockport has hills, but also has level, lightly-trafficked or traffic-free routes that follow river valleys or pass through parks.

These routes can be more direct than those available to other vehicles; usually short journeys made by bike in Stockport will be faster than if you chose to make the same journey by any other means. Roads may be crossed directly using crossings specifically designed for cyclists. There are also connections that only cyclists and pedestrians can use.
