Welcome to the Rochdale Routes to School website - using data collected from pupils, parents and educators we have developed material to help plan the safest route to your school.

The Greater Manchester (GM) travel plans website provides assistance on how to develop and implement an effective travel plan both in GM and across the UK.

Features include news, events, case studies and a local advice centre providing specialist guidance from the 10 local authorities in Greater Manchester.

The National Standards for cycle training aim to promote a nationally agreed uniform syllabus and guidelines for all cycle training in the UK.

This consists of three levels now called "Bikeability" that progress a cyclist from basic control skills, to riding on busy roads including multi-lane filtering techniques and busy roundabouts.

Anyone completing the syllabus will become a competent and confident rider able to ride their bike anywhere and in all conditions.

By establishing the National Standards, the Government has set out a nationwide, uniform programme of formal training which will reassure those wanting to cycle that they have been instructed in the essential skills and procedures wherever they live in England.

One of the UK’s most successful projects in bringing about travel behaviour change amongst our young people by enabling them to cycle to school.

Bike It is designed to give children the skills and confidence to travel under their own steam, and parents the peace of mind to let them.
