Tour de Manc – An epic cycle ride around Greater Manchester (100miles or 100km).
Welcome to the Tour de Manc. Our plan is to raise vital funds for Cyril Flint, whilst you cycle around Greater Manchester, challenging yourself and seeing Manchester’s best views.
You will leave in groups of 10 riders from The Lancashire Health & Racquets Club in Heywood at 0730, after a hot drink and registration. Then you will cycle out of the venue heading South East to complete an epic anti-clockwise cycle around Greater Manchester. You have the choice of tackling a challenging 100 miles or a slightly less challenging 100km. Whichever route you take, you can expect a brilliant ride and one that you will certainly enjoy! Expect varied terrain as you skirt Manchester, cross Cheshire, skirt the edge of the Peak District, the slopes of the Pennines and the rolling hills of North Manchester. Expect to see some amazing scenery and hidden gems and enjoy great comradery.
Don’t forget, you will need to bring your puncture repair kit, have a bike capable of the distance and bring your own supply of energy drinks and food to get you to the first stop. We will supply free drink and food at our stops and we will have mechanic and medical cover just in case. It’s a long day. And post ride, we will have free tea, baked goods and complementary massages to help with your weary legs. You can have a steam, sauna, jacuzzi and shower afterwards. And whilst you ride, your family can be our guests at the club.
There will be a prize for the King & Queen of the mountain and all finishers will receive a beautiful medal.
To celebrate the event, we are producing a Tour de Manc cycling jersey. The jersey is manufactured using hi-tech, high-quality materials and is custom designed for this specific event. We have designed and are manufacturing these Jerseys in Greater Manchester and are only producing a very limited number of them. The jerseys will make a great momento of your ride and will capture the spirit of Mancunian humour and has a touch of class. There’s nowt like it !
