Family-friendly Big Ride (and walk)

Join us on Saturday April 29 for our family-friendly Big Ride (and walk) calling for:
Clean Air
Healthy Streets
and More Cycleways

from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, the Mayoral candidates and our Local Authorities.

Family-friendly Big Ride (and walk)

Departs from Platt Fields at 2pm, with Dr Bike etc available from 11am, heading into the city-centre along Oxford Road’s new cycleway, then a return ride will arrive back at Platt Fields by 4pm.

Latest details and updates on the Facebook event page.

There will be feeder rides from both directions on the Fallowfield Loop – check back here later for further details and please get in touch if you’re able to help with these or other feeder rides.

We’ll meet by the lake with a Dr Bike workshop from 11am to help with any minor adjustments your bike may need, and to share cycling and maintenance tips.

We’ll be riding at a child-friendly pace and people are welcome to walk alongside too, or if you fancy a shorter walk (or ride) then why not join us at All Saints Park at 2.30pm.

We’ll deliver the petition and a letter calling for action to the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Manchester City Council, then send copies to TfGM and the other nine GM Local Authorities. We’ll also seek specific commitments from the Mayoral candidates.
