We at Simply Cycling have taken part in the Manchester Day Parade and other local festivals and parades every year for the last seven years. This year will be no different but we need help to design and build structures to fit on our bikes that reflect the theme of this years Parade - 'MAGIC!' We love being part of community events and being out on the streets with the bikes that have given us such enjoyment and independence.

What we'll deliver:

  • Employ a community artist for five days
  • Purchase materials to build structures to attach to the bikes
  • Purchase materials to make costumes everyone can wear

Why it's a great idea:

Taking part in big community and city-wide events are a way of celebrating the achievement and success that we enjoy when cycling week in, week out. To be able to ride an adapted bike around the streets of our great city brings thrill and excitement to our participants. As well as being included on equal terms with everyone else taking part its great for those that are often on the margins of society.
