It was a beautiful evening for a cycle ride
with around 150 fellow riders.
We met many others on bikes...
and created a real party atmosphere on Deansgate.
Thankfully, there was one sound system to provide music. The red cycle trailer that was silent on June's ride had been repaired with a new pair of off-the-shelf loudspeakers.
After a short excursion into Salford we returned to Manchester
and then towards the Northern Quarter.
The ride was really friendly
and featured lots of colour
though some sartorial combinations were questionable ;-)
This contraption was supposed to be a bubble machine, but failed on the ride.
skateboards and three new scooters.
After a wonderful decent of London Road
we went south down Oxford Road
and out to Platt Fields Park
to visit the new Bike Hub project.
And finally a demonstration of what the bubble machine was supposed to do :)
Gives me ideas for next month...
