Brought to you by the organisers of the Bupa Great North Run, The Great Manchester Cycle is the UK's biggest ever closed road timed cycling event. Now in its second year there are a number of significant opportunities for companies to align their brand with this unique and vibrant event. Currently there is the opportunity to become the title sponsor for this event and benefit from exposure in all marketing and promotional activity surrounding the event.
This event is very on trend. Following the success of the British Cycling team at the London 2012 Olympics, a huge proportion of the population has taken up cycling. This event is a perfect opportunity for you to reach and engage with your consumers.
