September 17th 2016 –

A CELEBRATION OF WOMEN’S CYCLING FOR ALL AGES AND ABILITIES

Bored of traffic, low on cash, or want to take back control of your commute? – Why not get pedalling?!

In a city as flat as Manchester, cycling is often the quickest, most direct and cheapest way to get around the city, so what’s stopping you?
Many women feel unsafe or nervous about cycling on the roads – rush hour traffic, dark streets and the risk of punctures can be intimidating…
It’s time to take back control in a day of WORKSHOPS, MUSIC, PERFORMANCES and FREEBIES provided by a collaboration of Manchester cycling groups and artists.

ACTS AND ACTIVITIES …..

Spokes – Bicycle Dancing

SheChoir –   Women’s choir
