The great day arrived bright and sunny after the preceding week of grey skies and rain. A morning of dashing about fixing, tweaking and final checks culminated in a last minute welding panic for our newly built ‘low rider PA platform’ which refused the speed bumps.

Once makeup had been applied and costumes donned we moved the sculptures into position, 2 burst tyres and ‘pit stop’ inner tube changes later and we were off.

A very hot and tiring but amazing and exhilarating 2 hours in front of crowds of 1000’s of on lookers flew by as we pedaled, waved shouted our way around Manchester with the Oldham dancers putting on an amazing show.

All in all a great day that left us all hoping to return next year.
