“Manchester is the home of British Cycling and the trail is a remarkable addition to our world-class cycling provision that already includes the velodrome and indoor BMX track. It has taken a lot of hard work and planning to create the new trail, but now it’s complete I’m sure everyone will agree it is a fantastic new facility we can all be proud of.”
