There are loads of cycle routes in Warrington, and we’re adding new ones all the time. We’re also making our roads safer and easier to ride on. Because our town is quite flat and compact, most places are close and easy to get to by bike, and many of our cycle routes have signs to keep you on the right track.
We offer free Bikeability level 2 cycle training to 10 year olds in Warrington through their primary schools. The more advanced level 3 is also available to teenagers. Ask if this is available at your secondary school.
You can also get free training if you’re over 16 and live, work or study in Warrington. There are Bikeright Freewheeling cycling courses for everyone from beginners to experienced riders. The friendly instructors are fully accredited, and courses are available during daytime, evenings and weekends.
If you want to buy second-hand, don’t buy a stolen bike! Always make sure you see proof of ownership and check the bike frame number at BikeRegister.
If you often ride your bike to work, ask your employer if they can offer a cycling scheme such as Cycle2Work. Supported by the government, it means you can buy a new bike, tax-free, by paying a little bit each month straight out of your salary.
Our Local Transport Plan sets out how we’ll improve transport in Warrington and tackle things like traffic congestion and poor air quality. And it’s really important that we encourage and make it easier to cycle and walk in Warrington, so there is also a Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP).
