Getting on your bike is quick, healthy and low cost. Cycling is therefore a great way to get around the local area, or if you are a little fitter, to travel further afield.

To the right are a range of useful links, including a local Walk & Cycle Map, a useful online journey planning tool, details of local and leisure cycle rides.

For a quick guide to cycle times to key local destinations see below:

  • Stainburn School & Science College: 0.8 miles – approx. 5 minutes by bike
  • Workington Town Centre: 1.4 miles – approx. 9 minutes by bike
  • Workington Station: 2 miles – approx. 12 minutes by bike
  • TESCO: 1.8 miles – approx. 11 minutes by bike
  • Morrisons: 2.6 miles – approx. 16 minutes
  • Clay Flatts Industrial Estate: 2.3 miles – approx. 14 minutes
  • Derwent Howe Industrial Estate: 2.5 miles – approx. 15 minutes

Whilst cycling will already therefore be a practical option for many local trips, Story Homes have designed each home to provide covered cycle storage and visitor cycle parking is also available.
