Walk Ride Greater Manchester

A new campaign group has been started covering cycling and walking in Greater Manchester. Its goal is to promote walking and cycling as major methods of transport and to campaign and garner support for these. Examples of early goals include a traffic-free Deansgate, trialling bikes on trams, and preventing cars from parking on pavements. There are plans afoot to start local groups, including one in Stockport.
