Cycling is a healthy and sustainable means of travel, which does not damage the environment and is great for short journeys.
We are making improvements so that cycling is safer, more secure and more enjoyable in town centres and along routes linked to residential areas. There are also ambitious plans to link the borough's own network of cycle, foot and bridle paths into various national and regional networks.
Cycle improvements coming to Wigan
Wigan Council has been awarded extra funds to make cycling more attractive in Wigan borough.
Plans include dedicated cycle and pedestrian facilities, cycle crossings on Robin Park Road, Warrington Road, Wallgate, Saddle Junction and around the Pemberton area.
Active Outdoors - Cycle, Run and Walk sessions
Our Active Outdoors team is here to get you moving with roughly 100 guided cycling, running and walking sessions every week. Active Outdoors sessions take place across the borough and are suitable for adults of all fitness levels and abilities. Just bring yourself - and have fun!
For cycling sessions, riders are encouraged to bring their own bike and helmet or take advantage of the new service at Leigh Bike Library, where you can loan bikes, helmets, locks and other cycling equipment absolutely FREE of charge.

The Line in Standish is getting an upgrade. You can find out about the project and view the plans on the Standish Cycling web page.
