It’s fast, healthy and above all low cost. Cycling is therefore a great way to get around whether travelling within Swinton or slightly further afield. Homes at Carlisle Park are all provided with suitable cycle storage, and the village is a pleasant place to get around by bike.

Carlisle Park benefits from being in one of the less hilly parts of South Yorkshire and there are lots of opportunities to cycle, both to access local facilities but also for recreation.

A little further afield there are great cycle routes for a fun day out at Manvers where you can also get onto the Trans Pennine Trail which is part of the national cycle network.
