Popular Manc charity bike ride celebrates ninth edition

For the ninth year in a row Tour de Manc is coming to the city this weekend – a charity bike ride which runs across Greater Manchester, offering cyclists a unique challenge while raising thousands of pounds for a variety of causes.

From the vision of one man, Tour de Manc was established as an event that would challenge its participants physically and at the same time raise significant funds for its partnered charities while being part of a larger diverse community celebrating cycling.

This Sunday, thousands of cyclists, varying in level, will start on one of the four courses around Manchester, ranging from the 205km “Mad Manc” route, a huge loop around Greater Manchester down to the 55km “Northern Quarter” route. The event offers the chance to cyclists of all ages and capabilities to have a great Sunday while still contributing to charities.

Tour de Manc’s headline charities feature, the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity, SeaShell Trust, St’Ann’s Hospice and Prevent Breast Cancer.
