Great Manchester Cycle

The Great Manchester Cycle takes place on Bank Holiday Monday 4th June. The multi-distance event will be the first mass participation urban bike ride taking place on completely closed roads in an otherwise bustling city centre, including a stretch of Manchester’s busiest motorway – the iconic Mancunian way.

Part of a ‘Great’ festival of sport in Manchester this summer, the Daily Mirror Great Manchester Cycle will join a full programme that includes the UK’s most popular 10k, the Bupa Great Manchester Run and the British Gas Great Manchester Swim.
