More cycling in Manchester promises Mayoral candidate Andy Burnham

You could be sarcastic and say that anyone launching themselves on a UK Mayoral bid will offer the promise of increased cycling infrastructure in their manifesto, but it certainly does seem to be the trend as new London Mayor Sadiq Khan has committed to continue Boris Johnson’s legacy, and Manchester city candidate Andy Burnham is looking to do the same for the northern powerhouse city.

Burnham pledged this boon for cyclists and electric bike commuters if he is elected the first-ever Mayor of Greater Manchester. Below is his short interview with Channel 4 news anchor Jon Snow.

Burnham highlights something that most of us who ride can agree with, that of the belief that physical activity brings physical health benefits and mental health benefits.
