Time running out to sign up for Great Manchester Cycle

With less than a month to go until the Great Manchester Cycle, time is running out to sign up to one of the three rides on Sunday, June 28.

Over 6,000 riders are set to take part in the fourth installment of the annual festival of cycling in the northern city, with roads closed to traffic along the 13-mile city-centre route.

The route takes in both of the city’s major football stadiums, with the start village hosted at the Etihad Campus, close to the National Cycling Centre, before heading down to the Salford area and past Old Trafford.

Three routes, 13-, 26- and 52-miles, are available to ride on the day, with less than 500 places remaining on the longest ride.

Children between 8-15 years of age can ride their own bikes for free on the 13 mile route with a paying adult, while children aged between 3-7 years of age can ride with a paying adult in a tag-a-long bike or children’s bike trailer or seat.
