Members and friends of Cycling UK Scotland are invited to attend this free event, where intrepid cyclists will talk about their adventures with bees, trees, bikes and beer!
This September, cyclists from Manchester Art Gallery will be making an epic journey northwards to raise environmental awareness. Cycling UK member Ronan Brindley is at the helm, and has taken to his bike to raise awareness of various activities that are supporting the aforementioned bees, trees, bikes and beer.
Along with colleagues, he is planning a four day 334 mile journey from Manchester to Edinburgh to raise awareness of various environmental projects that have been spearheaded by the Manchester Museum, the Whitworth and Manchester Gallery. The organisations have planted flowers and trees and provided beehives; Mancunian bees are accordingly creating honey for use in beer.
Come along and listen to Ronan and colleagues as they talk about their journey to promote environmental sustainability, their actions in Manchester to create a more liveable city, and learn about the importance of ecosystems that support bees, trees and eventually beer. This event is perfect for those interested in urban sustainability, the environment, and of course, cycle touring!
The event is being supported by Cycling UK Scotland, The Manchester Galleries Partnership, Grow Wild, Manchester City of Trees and River of Flowers to promote the importance of tree and wildflower planting across the UK.
