The Daily Mirror Great Manchester Cycle (Great Manchester Cycle)

The Daily Mirror Great Manchester Cycle, a closed road mass ride on Monday 4 June, has reached its 2500 rider capacity for the 26-mile ‘Rule the Roads’ option. But with two weeks to go, there are still slots open for the 13-mile ‘Get Out and Pedal’ and 52-mile ‘Test Yourself’ rides. You can also win a place by entering the competition being run by our sister title Cycling Plus.

The routes are all based on a 13-mile loop which includes a stretch on the city’s busiest road, the Mancunian Way, which will of course be closed to motor traffic for the duration of the event. All rides cost £10/£5 (adults/kids) to enter, with children between 3-7 able to ride for free.

The event is timed to coincide with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend and is being dubbed “the UK’s biggest street party.”
