The campaign for walking, wheeling and cycling in Greater Manchester

Several people walking and cycling along separate protected pedestrian and cycling lanes, on Oxford Road in central Manchester

We believe active travel should be the natural choice for short journeys.

Walking, wheeling or cycling is good for our health, good for our communities and good for our planet.

But at the moment many people don’t feel that these modes of travel are safe or accessible enough – even though 49% of us want to walk or wheel more, and 40% want to cycle more.*

We campaign to make that possible.

Check out our current priorities below, and join the conversation to make active travel better in Greater Manchester.
