Street skills on show in Manchester

By September 28, 2011 March 11th, 2013 Manchester

A trial cyclist known for his dynamic displays on YouTube is taking to the saddle to share his skills at an open event in Manchester.


Danny MacAskill is taking part in a Street Light Session, a series of shows organised by Red Bull and Inspired Bicycles, to involve bikers of all abilities in a specially set-up urban environment. The five-hour session is seeking participants to try their luck on the course with MacAskill and other riders at a derelict site near the city centre.


MacAskill says the events give him a chance to check out the talents of the public, having recently returned from spending time out of the UK. He adds, “I am excited to see how the setup we are planning to build in Manchester is received, it should offer a great development platform for all levels of rider, and the location is simply insane.”


The Red Bull Street Light Session takes place at the River Street Development in Manchester on October 8 from 5.00pm to 10.00pm.  You can sign up for the event, and get more details, by visiting the Street Light website.
