This long distance cycle route was launched to celebrate National Bike Week in 2012. The 37 km / 24 mile trail follows the course of River Bollin from its source in Macclesfield Forest to where it joins the Manchester Ship Canal near Partington.

The route has been devised and tested by volunteers from the Bollin Valley Cycle Group with assistance from the Bollin Valley Partnership. Maps, marked up with refreshment stops and bike shops along the way, are available to download, below.

Using country roads for most of the way, the route is more suitable for experienced/confident riders but it also takes in part of the Trans Pennine Trail, which is great for families. The route can be cycled one way, catching the train back, or by using one of two return routes. Alternatively, cyclists can ride sections of the route between railway stations.
