Get ready for a great family day out as once again Sky and British Cycling are turning Britain’s streets and parks into the safest and most exciting places to take to two wheels.
Summer is just around the corner and that means that it’s time for a new season of Sky Rides.
Sky and British Cycling are working closely with councils to open streets and parks for days of completely traffic-free bike riding across the UK. It doesn’t matter whether it’s your first time cycling in public or you’re a keen enthusiast: they have something for everyone.
Last year, over 200,000 men, women and children took part in Sky Rides across 17 UK cities. This year, there’ll be 18 Sky Ride City events nationwide, including one this weekend at the Cyclopark in Kent.
You can register for free and there are loads of fantastic prizes to be won. For instance, you could have a cycling experience with Sir Chris Hoy at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester or you could win a brand new bike.
Sky Rides are part of Sky’s commitment to getting a million more people cycling regularly by 2013 and they’ve just announced that their agreement with British Cycling has been extended until 2016. So, not only can they continue to support elite cyclists like Sir Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton, but also to inspire everyone else to have fun, get fit and feel safe on two wheels.
Register for a Sky Ride now to be a part of it.
