Join us on this any one, any bike ride around Manchester and Salford. 

The neighbouring cities of Manchester and Salford, sharing a great industrial heritage, now play host to the more recently developed Media City in Salford Quays and Sports City in Eastlands. 

This 18 mile circular route takes us up the Ashton Canal tow path to Sports City, before continuing along National Cycle Network Route number 60 to the Fallowfield Loop. 

We'll stay on the loop down to Chorlton, before picking up National Cycle Network (NCN) Route number 55 through to Salford Quays. From here, there is a chance to take in spectacular views along the Manchester Ship Canal as we make our way back into Manchester City Centre. 

On the way, we'll see sights including the Etihad Stadium, Old Trafford, and the Lowry. 

The ride will be led by Paul, accompanied by David

Pace and Terrain

This will be a leisurely cycle suitable for those of all levels of fitness. The ride will be mostly off road, although there will be a few on-road stretches along the way. The route is relatively flat. We will stop for a snack break, likely in Chorlton. 

If you're not a regular cyclist, please do make sure your bike is in good condition - check the tyres are well inflated, chain is oiled, and you've got a spare inner tube, drinks and snacks with you.
