Since Bradley Wiggins et al stormed the Olympics this summer, cycling in the UK has grown more and more popular. But the proportion of women out on bikes has actually declined. Now a national programme called Breeze is aiming to get more females riding for fun.

In the New Year, Salford is joining the programme with free Learn To Ride courses for beginners and beyond at Winton Park, plus organised rides across the city. The Bikeability courses are being led by Christine Barker

"I am a British Cycle Breeze Leader which, in short, means I lead rides in the Salford area for women only" she says "I enjoy riding on the roads mostly and have been riding a bike since I was very young. The majority of my lead rides have been along the Worsley Canal to the Moorings, traffic free routes to the Imperial War Museum North and also to the Salford Quays and to Little Hulton.

"I ride because I enjoy it" she adds "I lead rides as some women feel more comfortable in a group setting and if I can help just one person get on their bike and enjoy the freedom of riding that's my feel good factor for the day. It's a joy for me to be apart of it."

The free courses confirmed for the New Year are…

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK.

To kick off the evening, Manchester councillor, Pat Karney, called Trump "The most dangerous leader since the 1930s...we have to stop the ideas of Trump going across the world..."

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".

SLOW WALKING, LOCK ONS AND ALL DIRECT ACTION OUTLAWED BY JUDGE

Many of the actions used by protesters at the Barton Moss anti-fracking demonstrations in Salford were outlawed by a judge at Manchester Civil Justice Centre yesterday, including slow walking, lock-ons and any obstruction of the highway.
