Hello and Welcome.

My name is Frances and I am the secretary of the Friends of the Fallowfield Loop - a volunteer group that works with Sustrans and other stakeholders to develop this route as an accessible urban cycleway and sustainable linear nature/wildlife resource. I see that on Sunday 1st July you will be having a ride along part of the Fallowfield Loop. Some of us will be on the Loop on on that morning  near to the access points close to Wilmslow road - so perhaps we will see you there.

To learn  more about us and what we do have a look at our website and facebook pages.

Best wishes, Frances
