Cycling in Solihull

Page under development

Cycling is a fantastic way to get out and about, explore your local area, socialise with family and friends, and improve your health and wellbeing. Cycling trips are also great for the environment as it’s a pollution-free way to travel.

If you’d like to get into cycling or cycle more often there are plenty of ways to get involved. Solihull has new Community Cycling Hubs and activities to take part in, excellent local cycling groups and clubs, a large network of cycle paths to explore, local route maps, free cycling leader and bike maintenance training opportunities for volunteers and much more.
