Friday 30th June 2017: This month we have a special event to mark the opening of the Oxford Road separated cycle route. We’ll meet at the usual locations (see below) and then cycle to Whitworth Park. We’ll be at the park from 8:30 ready to depart at 8:40. We’ll then head to Albert Square for 9am. You can join us at the usual locations listed below, at Whitworth Park, or at Albert Square for coffee.
Whether you’re new to cycling, returning to your bike after a break, or cycle every day, join us on our monthly rides (except December). We ride at a moderate pace and have experienced ride leaders. It is entirely law-abiding – we do not try to slow down the traffic. All welcome (bring a bike).
The Bike Friday rides end in Stevenson Square at the Hilton Street end, and we generally go and enjoy the good range of tea, coffee and cakes available at Ezra and Gil. Feel free to join us at this end point, or to come for all or some of a route (e.g. if we cycle past your work place, don’t feel you have to come to Stevenson Square and then cycle back again!).
If you’d appreciate help with the ride home too, or are interested in pairing up with an experienced cyclist for your ride to work, contact us and we’ll do our best to help.
Bike Friday is coordinated with Greater Manchester Cycling Campaign.
A set of guidelines for Bike Friday participants is available.
