Pete Able did the organising for this year's Bike Block in the Manchester Day Parade.
There was the usual chaos in Liverpool Road trying to get it all together.
...and we soon had to change rider on the sound system.
Once that was sorted we managed a bit of bike dancing - sort of.
There was a bit of waiting around, but the parade moved pretty swiftly this year.
All too soon it ended. After a bit of a wait it was time to return the float down Deansgate - Julian got to power his marvelous creation.
A cycling weather machine dedicated to Admiral Robert FitzRoy.
...and we were the only float to arrive back inside before the rain started :-)
