Greater Manchester Cycling Campaign AGM

The AGM of Greater Manchester Cycling Campaign will be held at 7.00 pm on Monday 11th February 2013 at Friends Meeting House, Mount Street, M2 5NS.

This is going to be a very important year for cycle campaigners in Manchester, starting on February 18th with the opening of the TfGM consultation on the Oxford Road Bus Priority Scheme. This scheme could be a make-or-break moment for cycle provision in Manchester. If done well it could provide the first high quality cycle route in Manchester, but if done wrongly people cycling on Oxford Road could find themselves squeezed between double-decker buses on a token piece of green tarmac.

Come along and get involved. There will be lots to do to push for a decent cycle route along Oxford Road. It is already Manchester's busiest cycle route and is "officially the busiest bus route in Europe, with more than 100 buses an hour." The campaigning will be tough because TfGM seems to be set on imposing a poor quality solution.
