Cycle Steps
1. Quite an easy loop, heading through Withington towards the Universities and up towards the city centre. It then follows the canals, route 86 and route 60, before joining the Fallowfield Loop Line, heading down to Chorlton and back up to the start. Generally quite flat and mostly tarmac/tow paths. Cobbles and shallow steps at some of the locks might require you to dismount, along with one or two long bridges. There are few benches along the canals and places to stop along the Loop Line.
