As well as the bus, train and tram information listed on the Buses To And From Moss Side page, there are other means of car-free transport in and around Moss Side.
The nearest bike shop to Cranswick Square/Moss Side is between the bus station and Claremont Road on Princess Parkway, but it’s small and has a limited stock. Bicycle Doctor on Dickenson Road in Rusholme has a bigger range and lots of specialist advice on offer, as does Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op on the corner of Moss Lane East and Wilmslow Road, at the northern end of Curry Mile. Bicycle Boutique, behind the Sand Bar in All Saints, is excellent for quick repairs.
Cyclists and walkers wanting to get away from urban Manchester and feel like they’re instantly in the countryside can head less than a mile south of Moss Side to Fallowfield Loop.
If you work and pay PAYE, you can also get big savings on the cost of new bikes and cycling equipment like helmets and lights, and have the cost of them taken out of your wages monthly over a year instead of paying a lump sum. For bike shops participating in the scheme within 10 miles of Cranswick Square see here.
Membership of The Carbon Co-op also gets you half price membership of the City Car Club, a car-share scheme which allows people to have access to cars occasionally when they really need them, rather than buying expensive, gas-guzzling vehicles which they end up using all the time.
