Quick Launch

Cycle Schools and Colleges project

TfGM wants to encourage students, parents and teachers to get on their bikes and get active.

The Cycle Schools and Colleges project was launched in July 2014 and we are now working with over 20 schools and colleges across Greater Manchester to develop cycling as an attractive and convenient travel option.

Working closely with each school, we are investing in cycling infrastructure in and around the school’s location, including improvements to local cycle routes and providing new and improved cycle parking facilities.

We also offer guidance, training events and continued support for each of the schools and colleges taking part in the project.

Mary Hunter, Principal at Xaverian College, Manchester, said: "The initiative has given both students and staff great encouragement, through really enhanced resources and facilities, to support their fitness campaign through cycling.

"The scheme has also supported road improvements locally to improve safety for those cycling to college".
