Further courses and options

The University has a limited number of spaces at these events. It is hoped that more courses will be run in Spring 2013 and so if courses are full, a waiting list will be kept.

If you cannot make these courses but would like cycle training, TfGM offers FREE cycle training to all who live, work or study in Manchester.
