Care to Cycle Dance?
This My Alter-Eco story features an inspirational bunch of young women from Manchester called ‘The Spokes’ The Spokes are unique and are the only all-woman all-bike-loving bicycle dance troupe in the U.K. Their aim is to entertain people by choreographing and performing synchronized bike riding/ dancing and tricks. In a wider sense they also want to promote bicycle riding through their dance routines.
The Spokes perform at various events in the Manchester area and hope to encourage others to get on their bikes and cycle more because as a mode of transport it is safer, more sociable, more rewarding, more fun, less damaging to ourselves and the people and environment around us than our massive car culture.
We think they are spot on….what better way to encourage people to get on their bikes than a bit of cycle dance!
