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.   

Starting and finishing at Eastlands, the course will take you through the districts of Manchester, Trafford and Salford. The urban terrain provides access to roads normally strictly off limits to cyclists, giving you a new perspective on the iconic buildings and landscapes of Greater Manchester. 

The event has three distance options, setting off in waves from 08:00 - giving you the option to Get Out and Pedal over 13 miles, Rule the Roads over 26 miles or Test Yourself over 52 miles. Suitable for all ages and abilities, the Great Manchester Cycle is brought to you by the organisers of the Bupa Great Manchester Run, so you can be guaranteed a safe and well organised event.

Part of a 'Great' festival of sport in Manchester this summer, the 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.

Entry fee includes; accurate chip timing, a Great Manchester Cycle T-shirt, medal and finishers pack. There will also be a feed station on course to keep you hydrated and your energy levels topped up.
