GMCC History

Success and continuing campaigns include:

  • helping to defend the Wilmslow Road corridor for cyclists, persuading Manchester City Council not to axe the scheme
  • successfully negotiating continued access to the city centre where consultants planned to prohibit cycling
  • providing input to many planning proposals to make the area more cycle friendly
  • lobbying for more parking in the city centre, at railway stations and in nearby towns
  • representing our members on cycle forums in Greater Manchester. This gives us a direct link to councils, and increases their accountability.
  • campaigning for the conversion of the former Fallowfield railway line into an East-West cycle route for South Manchester
  • helping to produce the Manchester Cycling Map
