Last night we held the closing party at Sandbar to finish off an amazing week of bike events. It was great to see some faces that have become familiar over the last week. We played a game to distribute prizes kindly donated by our ever-willing sponsors at Bicycle Boutique.
This was the first time The Spokes organised a week long festival and we’ve had such a brilliant time. Huge thanks to everyone who turned up to the events, you’re amazing!
So what’s next now the festival is over?
Come cheer us on doing what we do best!
Saturday 14th July, Hazel Grove Carnival
Saturday 21st July, Envirolution Festival at Platt Fields Park
We’ve had many requests to organise more rides. Give us a change to recover from the festival and practice for the performances, then we shall get organising! Updates will follow on the blog and our facebook.
You don’t have to wait for us to organise one. If you are going for a bike ride, let us know and post the details on our facebook. We will then plug it for you. This will be a fantastic way for the community we’ve built up over this week to remain active whilst we find some time to organise something ourselves.
Fancy a good at Bicycle Dancing?
We’re always looking for new ladies to join our troupe. No experience of dancing or performance required. You do not need to be good at tricks or co-ordination. We can teach you and provide the little bikes. We rehearse each Thursday 7-9 at the Circus House in Central Retail Park, Ancoats.
For the gents, we would love to see a male bicycle dance troupe in Manchester! Get in touch if you’re interested. We will help you set one up and put you in touch with other interested guys!
