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

that 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 each other.
Here is our
Cycling Presentation.

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.

A 1.5m. width dimension should only be used where the speed limit is 30mph or less

and over short distances (less than 100m)

Here is a Dutch interpretation

While the markings may appear odd,

the Oostzaan cycle path is not the only one in the Netherlands leaving little room for cars.

And, as all Dutch people know, cars can cross into the red asphalted area

if there is no alternative and no bikes in the way.




Transport for Greater Manchester are promoting their road changes.

Here is one for Oxford Road



Police start to take Cyclist' Safety seriously.

Alan Newton Way

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

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 appears to be getting the funding for a bridge over the River Goyt

into Woodbank Park it will never reach its full potential and encourage cycling unless NCN 55

is given a surface suitable for commuting cyclists. Contact your Local Councilor

Big Bike Revival

There is 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, that are along the length of most 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 cyclists life.


One magazine's view of Cycling and the Law




Greater Manchester is currently investing over £30million in the first phase of the VéloCity program.

Try to ensure this benefits you by using the Space for Cycling facility.

Sustrans Routes

Sustrans Routes are now available in conjunction with Google Maps.

You can now search Countrywide down to Road level.



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

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 calls the extension to Bredbury an aspirational route!!
Eventually it should become part of NCN Route 55.

Please lobby your Councillors to ensure the route doesn't stop at Chadkirk.

The present track to Bredbury will need considerable improvement
to the surface and drainage before it becomes a useful route for general use.
