Cycle Forum

The forum is open to anyone with an interest in cycling and meets four times a year to discuss cycling in the borough as well as council proposals and strategies that relate to active travel.

Attended by elected members and senior council officers, the forum also facilitates debate on wider issues such as infrastructure, education, training and promotion of cycling.

Cycling on Towpaths

The canal network provides a great opportunity for leisure cycling, and commuting. You don't need a permit to ride on towpaths, but must follow the guides from the the Canal and River Trust.

Cycling Policy

The Council’s own Cycle Strategy aims to develop the network of segregated cycle routes across the Borough. This will make use of canal towpaths, disused railway lines and public rights of way in order to avoid the area’s steep hills and heavily trafficked roads wherever possible.
