JOIN US! On the 19th March to make history for women’s cycling in Manchester!
As part of Transport for Greater Manchester‘s WHOLE month of cycling events, we are delighted to be one of 60 – all happening to support International Women’s Day.
We’ll be leaving Platt FIelds Bike Hub at 1pm to form one of the three feeder rides to join the main event. We’ll pedal at a chilled lovely pace around the park, up the Fallowfield Loop and onto Alex Park. We’ll have qualified Ride Leaders on hand to help keep the group together 🙂
The main mass participation ride will be happening in Alexandra Park where all the feeder rides will come together for one bulk beaming pedal around the park – HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN WE GET!!??? Followed by an ace bike party with a bunch of stuff going on to boost current pedallers and encourage newbies to the saddle. Here’s what’s happening:
>> Free bike tuning & maintenance advice
>> Cyclist’s Speaker’s Corner – get your voice heard!
>> Learn2Ride sessions
>> Tasty grub & drinks at the Teahive Cafe
>> Silly bike games for kids and adults with ACE prizes to be won [more info to follow]
>> Women’s cycling photo exhibition
>> Safety goodies & bike training information from the TfGM bike trailer
It’s going to be a great day! Please please spread the word to anyone you think might be interested.
