More about Cycle and Stride

LMCT more 1

Cycle and Stride for Active Lives is a three-year project funded by The London Marathon Charitable Trust (The Trust) to inspire activity within local communities in Greater Manchester. The Trust’s vision is a society in which everyone is physically active, contributing to their health and wellbeing. It works towards this by enabling people to become and remain physically active, and to challenge the inequality of access to physical activity to deliver the greatest impact for their target audiences; children and young people and groups less likely to be active including women and girls, people from ethnically diverse communities and people who are less well-off financially.

The project aims to support up to 60 community groups over three years until 2023. Applications to take part will be staggered throughout the three years.

At this stage we’re just asking for expressions of interest. If you or your group are interested please fill in the form and Faye or Claire will contact you for a chat to find out more. If you would prefer to email us, you can reach us via .

Please share with any people or groups who you think could benefit from this project.

TfGM - Cycling - Secondary school 4


We have lots of experience working with schools in Greater Manchester and will be bringing our support online with an exciting new dedicated website full of resources for teachers, students, families and care givers. During this project, we need your help in deciding what should go onto the website in order to shape our work.

If you’d like to know more about how we can support your school or have an idea for a school-based cycling and walking project, let us know by registering your interest.

TfGM's future plans

Plans are underway to transform Greater Manchester include a fully joined up cycling and walking network covering 1,800 miles. This will create safer routes, making cycling and walking a viable choice for those that don’t do so now. Many communities don’t have the same chances to access physical activity, or the confidence to give it a go in a supportive and friendly environment.

This project is a great opportunity for us to work with people and groups to understand at a local level what matters to people and what will help them increase their physical activity through cycling and walking.
