The North West will get 15 million pounds of Government money to make cycling in our towns and cities safer.
The money will be used to improve the design and layout of roads at 78 locations across the country, with all schemes due for completion within the next 12 months.
The cash consists of a 20 million Government grant and 20 million from local authorities.
Transport Minister Norman Baker said: "Cycling is healthy and reduces congestion so it is welcome news that more and more people are taking to two wheels.
The schemes cover every English region apart from London
