It is one of the simplest lifestyle choices that individuals can make to reduce their carbon footprint. It also has huge benefits for their health, their wallets and their neighbourhoods.

Greater Manchester Cycling Campaign is a voluntary group working to make cycling in Greater Manchester quicker, safer, easier and more enjoyable.
The Campaign meets on the 2nd Monday of each month, from 7.00pm at the Friends Meeting House, Mount Street, Manchester, M2 5NS, close to Manchester Town Hall. The meeting is usually followed by a drink in a nearby pub. Come along and get involved or meet us on one of our social rides.
The Campaign wants more people to cycle for transport and leisure. It represents and empowers people who do this.
We have been operating since 1981, under the former name, Sprocket. (GMCC)
