Lucy's Big Ride, Day VII

Yesterday Lucy cycled a ridiculous 81 miles, meaning she's now over half way there! Day 7 saw Lucy cycle from Warrington to Kendal, passing Manchester along the way. Both Lucy and EMERGE are proud to call Manchester their home. It's a city with a wonderful history of innovation and leadership during the Industrial Revolution and is surely set to be one of the UK's leading 'green lights' (works on two levels, brownie points for me!) in the future.

Manchester is a hotbed of all sorts of green events and groups, and a particularly good one is coming up in the very near future. Envirolution is a Manchester-based community cooperative which aims to "create a catalyst for environmental and social change". Their free annual event will take place on 21st July at Platt Fields Park in Manchester, and it's a must for all you Manchester-based readers! Have a look at their video from last year's event:



This year there'll be stalls from lots of different organisations, including Greenpeace UK, Feeding Manchester and Stitched Up. And of course, EMERGE will be there too! It's free to attend and will be great fun, so we hope to see you there!
