The Ashton Canal provides a traffic-free route for cyclists from Manchester city centre and Ashton.
Our footbridge crosses the Ashton canal, which is National Route 60, so there are a number of off road routes you can use, some of only suitable in daylight.
From Manchester: Piccadilly Gardens (Stop D) Service number 216 to Etihad - journey time 10 minutes.
Service numbers 231, 235 and 237 also pass the Etihad campus.
From Ashton: Ashton Bus Station - Service number 216 - journey time 24 minutes.
Alight by MCFC Training ground, and cross Ashton New Road, to access the NCC via the canal bridge.
We have our own Metrolink Station - Velopark. Trams to and from Velopark every 12 minutes, or every 15 minutes after 1700 on Sundays.
The excellent Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) website contains route planners, to find your way from anywhere in Manchester, as well as downloadable timetables.
