Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) is working in partnership with British Cycling and HSBC UK to inspire more people to get on their bikes and enjoy cycling.
Since 2010, more than 165,000 people in Greater Manchester have been inspired to ride bikes regularly through British Cycling’s free bike rides and events, making a huge difference to the local economy and the health and wellbeing of people who live and work in Greater Manchester.
Each year we work with British Cycling to offer hundreds of free bike rides across all ten boroughs to help you get cycling.
