Covid-19 Update:

Remobilising our Cyclists: 23rd June 2020

1. Following the guidelines laid down by Manchester City Council and government advice re Covid-19, we will be open each day but only on one site per day and with VERY limited numbers. We cannot ‘unfurlough’ all our staff as income will be greatly reduced due to low numbers.

Usual price is £2.50 per person and card payments are preferable.

We are offering 45 minute sessions limited to 12 people at any one time.

If you can – please phone ahead to book your slot which will start on the hour.

Tuesday 23rd:       Wythenshawe 9 – 3
Wednesday 24th: Wythenshawe 9 – 12
Friday 26th:            Longford 9 – 12
Saturday 27th        Wythenshawe 1 – 4
Sunday 28th           Longford 1 – 3
Monday 29th          Longford 9 – 12

2. If the track is full and you haven’t booked and don’t want to queue or wait we are also in a position to allow small groups to take our bikes around the park. Again 45 minutes at the usual price of £2.50 per person.

3. We are also continuing to offer our “led Rides’ in and around the local community. These have been extremely successful over the last few weeks and have meant cyclists have grown in confidence, developed bike handling skills and been able to explore the local area.

These need to be booked and again places are VERY limited as we cannot ride in groups larger than 6.

Led Rides are available each week day morning and afternoon and last between 2 and 3 hours. Please phone to book your place and rides will be tailored to each group depending on need and level of support required.

Led rides cost £20.00 per person.

4. We cannot clean down helmets in between sessions so if you want to wear a helmet please provide your own.

There will be no toilets or refreshments available.

5. All the above times will be under constant review and we will publish a weekly update to keep you informed of our sessions. Please keep yourselves updated on our website.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

If you’ve been to the Wythenshawe track recently then you cannot have failed to notice our new kitchen and especially the addition of our wonderful new cupboard units!

We would like to say a big thank you to Renaker Build Ltd for co-ordinating things, The Richmond Cabinet Company in Glossop (  for donating the units and Gary Williams Joinery of Bolton for their generous services installing them. Much appreciated.

As you can see from the photos everyone is very pleased and the units look great!

Just a quick thank you again, as today I did 8 laps. I find it very hard to believe how at first I couldn’t do 1 lap without stopping. If I continue like this I will be able to do the Tour de France soon.

I can’t thank you and all the volunteers enough, but mostly Gregor.

Ray and I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at Simply Cycling for the last couple of years of cycling for George and then for Ivy. Everyone has been so welcoming, making the children feel safe and confident. You also provided an easy way for two grandparents to be able to introduce our angels to cycling in a safe environment so that we could relax and enjoy watching them learn. Special thanks must be given to Jeff (Geof?) Helen and Gregor. Even as a beginner cyclist I have felt able to join in cycling with my special little ones. It is a healthy activity for all the family, regardless of ability and a most wonderful community resource.
Many many thanks to everyone who makes this possible we truly appreciate all your efforts.
Much love
Diane and Ray

Mencap have made a great short film about Simply Cycling with good shots of loads of bikes and riders and interviews with riders who explain why they like cycling. Why not give it a viewing – it’s on You Tube, just click here to view!

Don’t forget that Simply Cycling is an all ability activity with all sorts of people coming to the sessions. Last Sunday at Longford Park a man who had come with his family was so excited and thrilled at his cycling experience that he told me three times ” they don’t have sessions like this anywhere else – not even London.”  Well I don’t know about that but I do know that we have had record numbers coming over the summer and everyone seems to have a great time.

Now that Autumn is upon us we need to get things organized for our run up to Christmas so watch this space for news of the Cycling Holiday in October, the Halloween Party and the Santa Ride.
