Manchester's cycling scene boosted by share of £214m fund

Move over Amsterdam, Manchester's on its way to becoming a leading cycling city.

We're one of eight cities to win a share of the stonking £214 million fund to support new bike networks and make the roads safer for those of us on two wheels. The exact amount of cash Manchester's going to get is yet to be announced so watch this space for updates.

Whatever the number, this fund will help to improve the conditions for cyclists and pedestrians at some of Manchester's more dodgy junctions, and to speed up plans to develop our current cycling network.

The other seven cities joining us on our cycling ambition are Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds, Cambridge, Newcastle and Norwich.

Not into cycling? On your bike then, mate! Here's a load of other great things going on in Manchester.
