Crosspost: June as “Manchester Bike Month”? Seems like a good idea to us…

This below is a repost from Mad Cycle Lanes of Manchester.

Lots of things came out of the recent Manchester Cycle Forum including news that the Oxford Road Bus Priority consultation is now likely to be delayed till May as new details are drawn up.

However, this post is about the reaction I got to the news that there will be a cycling entry into the Manchester Day Parade on Sunday 2nd June. Cllr Kate Chappell who was chairing, suggested that, instead of just having Bike Week, Manchester should make June Manchester Bike Month.

Now, this can only work if lots of people are organising events, and whilst people have been talking about a Velo Fest and Bike Week, I have yet to see any dates for events confirmed. It would be good to coordinate all the disparate cycling groups in Manchester and pull together a really big bike festival.

So, to get the ball rolling, I’m going to make this page an unofficial diary for Manchester Bike Week/Month.

Please post comments here with details of your event, with web page links if you’ve got them. I will add the event to this page and this will also help compile a diary for the next eddition of GMCC News which I edit.
