Tour de Manc

  • Across Greater Manchester Starting at Virgin Active Lancashire Health & Racquets Club Heywood Old Road, Middleton M24 4TH

Welcome to the Tour de Manc!
Tour de Manc’s plan is to raise money for great causes, whilst you cycle around Greater Manchester, challenging yourself and seeing Manchester’s best views.

You will leave in groups of 10 riders from The Virgin Active Lancashire Health & Racquets Club in Heywood at 7:30am, after a hot drink and registration. Then you will cycle out of the venue heading South East to complete an epic anti-clockwise cycle around Greater Manchester.

You have the choice of tackling a challenging 100 miles or a slightly less challenging 100km. Whichever route you take, you can expect a brilliant ride and one that you will certainly enjoy! Expect varied terrain as you skirt Manchester, cross Cheshire, and skirt the edge of the Peak District, the slopes of the Pennines and the rolling hills of North Manchester. Expect to see some amazing scenery and hidden gems, and enjoy great comradery.


For more information about the two routes, check out the Tour de Manc website.

Don’t forget that you will need to bring your puncture repair kit, have a bike capable of the distance, wear suitable clothing and bring your own supply of energy drinks and food to get you to our first drinks stop. Tour de Manc will supply free food and drinks at our stops and will have mechanic and medical cover just in case.

It’ll be a long but enjoyable day. Post ride, the Tour de Manc organisers will have free tea, baked goods and complimentary massages to help with your weary legs, as well as a prize for “King and Queen of the Mountain” and a beautiful medal for all finishers… and they’ve promised one or two other surprises as well!
