Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op best bet for a pre-Great Manchester Cycle MOT

Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op best bet for a pre-Great Manchester Cycle MOT

| By MM staff

Worried about that creaking noise on your bike? Want to get out more this summer but putting off getting your wheels looked at?

Then there’s the build up to the June 28 Great Manchester Cycle as well, for some perhaps the first time they’ve attempted more than 50 miles en velo.

Never mind your legs giving up, or fatigue setting in, the biggest fear (and faff) is bike failure. So it’s time for a mechanic to take a look.

At Manchester’s Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative, cheerful and speedy services are par for the course, whether you’re competing in an event or a part-time pootler.
