A great 'Century' ride - a 100 mile route along beautiful lanes through a wide sweep of Cheshire, helping to raise funds for the Christie Hospital.
Starting and finishing at Wythenshawe Park, Manchester, the route heads first to Northwich, taking in Delamere Forest and Nantwich (the half way point) for lunch before heading back through Middlewich to the Finish.
“Organiser Bike Events once again made looking after 3,000 riders seem easy and hoped to improve on last year’s healthy six-figure sum raised for the Christie Hospital”. Cycling Weekly on the Manchester 100 ride.
"Another brilliant Manchester 100, my fourth time taking part, just seen my photo on the cycle sports site. Real action pose of middle aged man in lycra (MAMIL)." D. C.
"This was my first organised ride. Loved every minute of it." John Murray
"A big round of applause for Bike Events, Christies, the marshals, the British Red Cross, the staff at the rest stops and all those who took part! Thanks for making it a safe and great event! Excellent work." N. H.
