Cycle Streets is a UK-wide cycle journey planner system, which lets you plan routes from A to B by bike. It is designed by cyclists, for cyclists, and caters for the needs of both confident and less confident cyclists.
As an example the link below shows the route for a cyclist travelling at a balanced speed from Sale (Tatton Road) to MediaCityUK (M50 2EQ).
The journey time is estimated at 31 minutes and turn by turn directions are provided.
More experienced cyclists can choose a more direct route to travel at higher speeds.
