The Sale Orbital Trail distance is approximately 11.5 miles long.

Surface - Mostly off road

This circular route can be started at any convenient point and cycled in either direction. We will begin at Lacy Street car Park, Stretford. From here the Bridgewater Way is easily accessed behind the Royal Mail offices. Turn right onto the canal towpath. Within half a mile a TPT (62) sign directs a right turn and at the bottom of the steep slope turn left following the TPT (West) sign. We will then be able to follow the TPT signs for some 5 miles. We will also look out for the Stable Gate Café.

On reaching Broadheath, we will resist the excellent Lymm Railway Path to turn left along Atlantic Street bringing us eventually to cross the A56 in Altrincham. Then we shall make for Halfords car park and look for a small alley with four steps leading down to the canal towpath behind the Sea Scouts. This part of the towpath is to be upgraded next year. A left turn onto the towpath will lead us back to the start of the trail in Stretford. Sale affords some excellent refreshment at The Waterside or The Railway. Just a little further is The Bridge Inn. Once under the M60 bridge be ready to spot the slope taking you back to Lacy Street Car Park.

Kit list: hat, gloves, warm clothes, waterproof jacket and trousers, walking trousers walking boots as may be slippy tea flask.

Regular walking can...

  • fill you with energy and confidence
  • help you beat stress
  • make your heart fitter and strengthen your bones
  • help you keep your weight down

It's a great way to enjoy the kind of in-depth conversation with someone you'd never have on a Friday or Saturday night
