New Start/Finish Location for the Manchester 100

In response to rider feedback you will be very pleased to know that we have changed the Start/Finish location for the Manchester 100 to the fantastic National Cycling Centre!  Their website says "The National Cycling Centre was Britain's first indoor Olympic cycling track, and since it opened in 1994, has become one of the World's finest and fastest board tracks. The track is in constant use seven days a week and, thanks to the comprehensive programme of activities for all levels of ability, it is one of the busiest in the world... Regular users of the track include members of the very successful GB track cycling team, such as Sir Chris Hoy and Vicky Pendleton MBE, as well as local schoolchildren and track enthusiasts. In 2011 the National Cycling Centre was significantly expanded with the launch of the new £19M indoor BMX track. Together with new, purpose built offices for British Cycling, the governing body for cycling in Britain, this development will further consolidate Manchester’s status as the centre of cycling in the country." We are extremely excited about this new collaberation and can't wait until Sunday the 1st of September when the ride takes place!
