From quiet country lanes to serious downhills and awesome offroading, you’ll be sure to find a cycle route that suits you in the countryside around Bollington and Macclesfield. Take a gentle cycle along the Middlewood Way (pictured here), a pleasant 10-mile route along a disused railway from Macclesfield to Marple. Cycle along the narrow lanes between Bollington and Poynton. The Cheshire Cycleway follows a 176 mile route, and passes through Bollington on its way over the heights to Macclesfield Forest and Wildboarclough.

Or try the more gruelling Brickworks and Goyt Valley route, which starts from Macclesfield. The route climbs out of Bollington past the brickworks on Bakestonedale Road.


Bicycles may be hired from Bollington Boats and Bikes (situated adjacent to the canal on Grimshaw Lane).
