The Love Your Bike campaign is based in Greater Manchester. We aim to promote cycling and to help make it an attractive, accessible and fun way to get around. Cycling is far more than a leisure activity: it is the low-carbon transport of the future. Co-ordinated by Manchester Friends of the Earth, we aim to work closely with other like-minded organisations. Sign up form to join to the LYB mailing list.
