Cycle and Stride for Active Lives

Closed 3 Mar 2023

Opened 23 Jan 2023


Cycle and Stride for Active Lives is an exciting initiative from TfGM that supports community groups and people in Greater Manchester to become more active through walking and cycling.

Made possible by a £1 million grant from the London Marathon Charitable Trust, the three-year programme seeks to reach 10,000 people across communities that are least likely to be active or to walk or cycle their journeys.

The aim is to reach communities who experience more barriers when it comes to walking and cycling.
