All day

Stockport town centre



Stockport town centre is revving up to host its first Enduro & Cycling Festival – two awesome days of  spectating and festival fun on 18th and 19th September.

Stockport Enduro times

An exciting weekend of activities taking place across the town centre with thrilling stunts and displays for the whole family to enjoy: Half-Pipe displays and stunts by pro-BMX and scooter riders; a Fast Track (Pop Up Pump Track) open to all – bikes and helmets provided and BMX Flat Land displays.  Plus, don’t forget to bring along your bike so you can cycle round the town centre and visit all the attractions on 2 wheels.  

With action centred around the inspiring and animated Event Village in St Peter’s Square on both Saturday and Sunday, a wide range of fun, cycling related activities will be on offer for people of all ages and abilities to take part in. British Cycling will be on-hand to offer women’s led-rides around Stockport as well as a dedicated children’s bike circuit with a supply of different sized bikes. Life Leisure will be offering fun activities and there will be pedal powered challenges, smoothie making and bike MOTs by CeraCycloan.

On Sunday, some roads will be closed to vehicles, providing the opportunity to try out different bikes including balance bikes, electric bikes and adapted bikes for those with limited mobility. Families can also enjoy cycling together with a supply of rear toddler carriages being provided.

Come along and see all the imaginatively dressed bikes by local school children in the theme of ‘Heroes of the Pandemic’ and watch the winners being presented with medals by Stockport’s very own former Olympian cyclist Alan Newton and our Paralympian Megan Giglia.

Watch Fusion Extremes professional athletes perform a series of exhilarating, nail-biting stunt displays including BMX, Mountain Bike and Parkour.

This is a two day event.

This event is brought to you by Totally Stockport, Stockport Council & Transport for Greater Manchester.

Will the town centre be busy?
We expect a significant increase in town centre visitors on both the 18th and 19th of September, many of whom might not have visited Stockport town centre before.

Why is it necessary to close some of the roads?
A suburban cycle race in the heart of the town centre will be exciting and thrilling and will attract visitors from Stockport and beyond. To provide a safe route for the cyclists and a safe environment for spectators it is necessary to close certain roads.

I have deliveries on a Sunday, will I need to reschedule them? 
We have deliberately selected a Sunday for hosting the race as we know this is a quieter day for deliveries. Unfortunately, for those businesses that do have deliveries on a Sunday there will be some disruption on the 19th of September. Any deliveries that rely on Merseyway Service Yards, Chestergate, Little Underbank, Market Place, Bridgefield Street and Princes Street will be particularly affected as there will be no access from 7am. We advise organising deliveries for Saturday the 18th or later in the evening after 6pm on the Sunday

Can visitors and customers still park in the town centre car parks?
Yes – Merseyway, Redrock, Newbridge Lane, Heaton Lane and the Ritz Car Park on Piccadilly will all be open. Full list of car parks is available at https://www.stockport.gov.uk/car-parks.

Will the running race that is taking place on Saturday 18th September involve any road closures? 
The Urban 5K starts at St Peters Square at 10am and whilst certain roads are closed to accommodate the runners it’s a rolling road closure. This means the road only remains closed to traffic for a certain period of time to allow all runners through. As soon as all the runners have passed the road reopens. The runners will travel from St Peters Square along St Petersgate, through Market Place and onto Churchgate before they run along New Zealand Road towards Woodbank Park. The return to St Petersgate is via Welling Street.
