Manchester's month long annual cycling festival is kicking off this friday with Critical Mass (in Manchester of course) with an opening party after including bands and Rollapaluza roller racing.
Fot the next month there is almost an event on every day, including races, fares, day rides, night rides and then more rides, until the next Critical Mass and the closing party.
See here for the full schedule http://www.ibikemcr.org.uk/?q=annual-festival-2009
Highlights are hard to pick from a packed schedule of great events, but a couple of events stand out. The Moonlight Ride to Edale (staying over in a camping barn), and week later, a showing of the legendary film, A Sunday in Hell which follows the 1976 Paris-Roubaix race.
If any of it appeals then get on the facebook group for Liverpool Critical Mass and we can get a few people from liverpool meeting up and going on the events.
