I live in Stretford and was out walking and stumbled upon this cycleway at Hough End playing fields yesterday. I walked to Fallowfield and doubled back and walked to Chorlton. Today i decided to ride it. What a great cycleway. Yes it has a few flaws...a few places where you have to get off your bike and get it over... More

I have used this cycle way for years more recently with my children. It is a fantastic resource. As I am getting back on my bike again I decided to go last night .. Firstly some of the barriers have been sorted so you don't have to keep stopping.. Dog walkers were very friendly and helped me pass I'm sure... More

I enjoy cycling this route most days A facility shared by cyclists, pedestrians ,dog walkers and horse riders However on a number of occasions the experience is spoilt by the arrogance of dog walkers who allow their dogs to wander about out of control causing a dander to cyclists It is only a matter of time before a serious accident...

There's no getting away from the barriers all along the trail, there are a dozen along the length of the trail. Some require you to dismount to pass through, others tempt you to try and ride through but you risk ripping off a derailleur. Access for disabled users is none existent, the same for tandems, trikes, recumbent, cargo bikes, and... More

This is a local resource to me. We've lived near Fairfield train station since 2010. I've walked small sections of the loop and around Debdale prior to today. However, this was my first cycle journey! My word what a lovely route! My mrs and I bought one another bikes in the new year sales and today I did a solo... More

Really good track to get to the local south manchester communities via cycling with o work of traffic. Can get dark and creepy when the sun goes down

I have walked the old railway line many times. You can start in Chorlton and walk to fallowfield. You then have to walk towards wilmalow road and cross by sainsburys. Then walk alonng the car park and back on to the walk way. You can walk through Fallowfield,Burnage,Levenshulme,Gorton and onto Debdale park. As you pass through Gorton they have built... More

The Fallowfield loop is a walking and cycling route around the south of Manchester, running from Chorlton to Debdale. It's a decent route for walkers and those on standard bicycles, but there are anti-motorcycle obstacles every half-mile or so which make the route unusable for many types of cycle: If trying to travel by tandem, cargo-bike, touring-bike with panniers, tricycle,...

Plenty to pedal, scenic, offshoots into Platt Fields, Highfield Country Park and Debdale Park. Loads to see, sculptures along the way, information points clear.

Fallowfield, Rusholme, Burnage, Levenshulme, Gorton, Abbey Hey, Debdale... so many places along the route to explore. Perfect peddle powered pathway.
