Labour conference #space4cycling ride 22/9/14
GMCC want as many people as possible to ride with us on our Space for Cycling ride around the 2014 Labour Party conference, on Monday 22nd September. Assemble in All Saints Park from 6pm.
There are flyers and posters to download below – please spread the word and invite everyone you know!
We wont leave before 6.30pm so do join us even if you can’t arrive at 6pm prompt. As with last year’s party conference ride, we will have support from Greater Manchester Police to ensure we can remain in one group, keeping the ride safe and free from private motor vehicles.
We’ll have a Dr Bike available from 6pm if your bike needs any minor adjustments before the ride and we’ll have traffic police support, two bike mechanics and a trained first-aider on hand during the ride. The ride will follow the route below, returning to All Saints Park (M15 6BX). We should be finished by 8pm but it will be dark by then so remember to bring your lights.
We’ve also setup a petition where you can pledge your support for:
• dedicated space for cycling on busy main roads and junctions
• reduction of motor vehicle volumes and speeds on smaller roads
People should sign the petition even if you plan to ride with us too.
We’ll deliver copies of the petition to a Labour MP, an MCC Councillor and a TfGM Manager.
We’d especially like people to sign the petition if they want to ride but currently don’t – we’ve organised this ride to represent the views of people who are concerned for their safety on busy roads, so please forward this information to any people you think might be interested.
Please pledge your support using the petition, and encourage your friends to sign it too!
See you next Monday…
