July is seeing a month of 'rolling resistance' to fracking with all kinds of activities planned to oppose Cuadrilla's attempts to frack in the Fylde.

This Thursday, 20th July, cyclists will set off on a one day 'Tour de Lancashire' bike ride from Manchester to Blackpool, which will be winding its way through local sites of fossil fuel resistance including Barton Moss, Wigan, Leigh and Bolton before linking up with an evening ride from Preston to Blackpool.

"By evening, we'll arrive at the Camp of New Hope and join the frontline resistance against fracking at Preston New Road on Friday 21st July" state the organisers, Reclaim The Power "The 45 mile journey will ride at a medium pace taking regular breaks. The ride is free to attend and we will have a support vehicle to take tents and other luggage from the start point at Manchester to the finish point at Preston New Road."

All that's needed to bring is a working bike with puncture repair kit and pump, a sleeping bag, roll matt and tent, waterproofs and 'a desire to change the world'...
