Cycling is a quick, cheap and fun way of getting to and from Omega
Cycling is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine, and helps improve your fitness and health. If you’ve not been on a bike for a while, we can help you get back into the saddle.
Discover local routes

Free cycle training
We can arrange free cycle training to help you build your confidence. This is delivered on a one-to-one or small group basis, and can be tailored to meet your specific needs. The courses are arranged at a time to suit you. More information is available at warrington.gov.uk/cycle-training.
The council are planning some Dr Bike (bike maintenance) events at Omega. The events will allow our mechanics to service your bike free of charge, checking the condition, undertaking work to improve the basic safety of your bike and providing advice relating to future improvements and work on your bike. The events will be promoted so keep an eye out for further information about them.
Help purchasing a bike
As a resident of Omega, we are offering you a £50 voucher towards the purchase of a bike or cycling accessories at Halfords. You can apply for one of either a cycle, bus or car club voucher per household. To apply for the voucher, please email email@example.com
Some employers offer a Cycle2Work scheme, which allows you to purchase bikes tax free and pay for the bike monthly through a salary sacrifice scheme. Contact your company’s human resource department to find out if your company offers this scheme and to find out more information.
Parking and locker facilities
Cycle parking spaces are available at the retail units adjacent to the Whittle Avenue/Westbrook Way roundabout, which are for use by customers and staff.
