Cyclist


The Cyclist is one of seven sculptures sited along Lord Sheldon Way depicting local leisure pastimes. Lord Sheldon Way is the new western approach to Ashton from Manchester and will be the route of the Metrolink tram.

According to Tameside Council, the statues are designed to "enhance the visual environment" and "boost the first impressions of people visiting Ashton and create a lasting and positive image of the town".

  1. Don't believe it. I took the exact same shot earlier on today!
    Actually I photographed them all. Guess I'll be saving my shots!

    Did they say anything about the old baths?

  3. Must be some telepathy in the air, Calvers! I photographed them all yesterday.

    I had been meaning to do so for ages. I was on my way back from Manchester and, as it it was pleasantly sunny, got off the bus at the Snipe and walked all along Lord Sheldon Way into Ashton, snapping as I went! I'm planning to show them over the next few weeks.
