About

Various dates and locations from 15 June - 12 October 2014

On a Sky Ride Local ride you’ll be guided by friendly British Cycling Ride Leaders along scenic planned routes. With three different levels, there’s something for everyone – whether you’re building your confidence or already comfortable on a bike and looking for a challenge.

Easygoing
Not cycled for a while and looking for an easy way to get back in the saddle? Fancy a fun way to get your friends or kids riding? Easygoing rides are great for all abilities and ages, taking place along relaxed, mostly traffic-free routes.

Steady
If you’re fairly confident on your bike and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, Steady rides are
ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills, rides take place on mainly quiet roads with plenty of sights along the way.

Challenging
You don’t have to be the next Bradley Wiggins, but you’ll need to be fairly fit to take part in Challenging rides. As well as covering a good distance, there may well be a few hills along the way! If you fancy a fresh challenge, these rides are perfect for you.

Rides are all free and are grouped in levels to suit everyone from beginners to experienced cyclists. Whichever you choose, you’ll be riding on safe routes, in good company.

If you’re an adaptive bike user with access to your own bike and would like to participate in Sky Ride Local, please get in touch to discuss which routes might be suitable for you.
