Help neeeded. The Halls Route is a major asset for Stockport providing useful links between boroughs, however I only have a written description for travelling in a Clockwise direction.

Can anyone can assist by providing directions for travelling in an Anticlockwise direction.

It will be of great help for those not wanting to cycle all the way round.

Not long ago Stockport wanted to become a city.

See what they should be aiming for here.

and see how they cycle on The Netherlands here and here.

and an acticle on Copenhagen here.

We have a long way to go to catch up, and will not do so

while Stockport MBC chooses not to cater cyclists,

such as in the Connect 2 case below.



Connect2 was a joint project between Stockport Council and Sustrans
to create an Off Road Route between Marple and Stockport.

When the route is completed it will link with

the Middlewood Way and provide a Commuter route into Stockport and a leisure route to Macclesfield and beyond.

The Bridge is now over the river at Chadkirk.
A short video of the installation can be seen here.


Stockport MBC called the extension to Bredbury aspirational!!
But now appears to be going ahead with the project

Eventually it should become part of NCN Route 55.

Please lobby your Councillors to ensure the route is completed

and becomes one of Manchester's Bee Lines.

Tour of Britain

The Tour of Britain passed through Compstall

on Saturday the 14th September

for a sample see here.

Hopefully it will encourage Stockport to recognise that

Catering for Cycling can be beneficial to the area as a whole.



Manchester Airport Relief Road

and The Middlewood Way.

Now the A6 to MARR is open, and being used by many cyclists.

It is time for all cyclists to persuade Stockport MBC

the Middlewood Way should be properly surfaced in order to become

a cycle feeder route between Marple and the Airport.

Use this Link to find your Councillor.


Stockport MBC invited each of their User Groups

to outline the problems they have to Stockport MBC

and to each other.

Cycle Lanes

What every Motorist should know:-

You MUST NOT drive or park in a cycle lane marked by a solid white line

during its times of operation.

Do not drive or park in a cycle lane marked by a broken white line unless it is unavoidable.

You MUST NOTpark in any cycle lane whilst waiting restrictions apply.

What every Cyclist should know:-

Keep within the lane when practicable.

Use of cycle lanes is not compulsory and will depend on your experience and skills,

but they can make your journey safer.

What every Highways Engineer should know:-

The target design width for a with-flow cycle lane is 2.0m.

1.5m. width lanes should only be used

where the speed limit is 30mph or less

and over short distances (less than 100m)

Alan Newton Way

Officially Opened by the Mayor etc at 2pm on July 2nd 2016.

However the Alan Newton Way is part of NCN 55. See below.


Stockport Council should complete National Cycle Network 55 from Marple into Stockport.

Although Stockport say they hoping to get funding for a bridge over the River Goyt -into Woodbank Park it will never reach its full potential and encourage cycling until NCN 55

has a surface suitable for commuting cyclists.

Big Bike Revival

A Government funded initiative to help people revive their bikes.

If you are interested in getiing your bike working again,

or, better still, setting up a renovation group see here



Cyclists' Safety

It is recognised that the number of lorry/cyclist collisions is disproportionate to the number of vehicles on the road.

The Government is supporting a German proposal

to link the side marker lights, along the length of long vehicles,

to the signalling system to give cyclists vital seconds warning

to take avoiding action.

They say this has been an option for a number of years,

but few vehicle operators have bothered to take up the option.

This video put out by the Road Haulage Association shows exactly the situation where this modification could have

helped save the cyclist's life.
