Issued by City of York Council
A series of inclusive Sky Ride Local rides will be taking place in York thanks to a partnership between City of York Council, British Cycling and Sky.
Cllr Sonja Crisp, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism, said: “Ahead of Stage 2 of the 2014 Tour de France starting in York we want to make cycling as accessible as possible for everyone.
“The inclusive Sky Rides will go a long way in helping us achieve this and give everyone a chance to enjoy riding a bike.”
The partnership which saw 5,500 cyclists take to the streets of York on September 14 for the first ever Sky Ride York has now enabled several inclusive rides to take place in York.
The rides will be held on the 1km purpose built cycling track at the York Sport Village. Get Cycling will have a fleet of adapted bikes for people to test out so everyone can take part.
Rides will take place on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 October from 3pm until 5pm. Children aged 8 and above and adults can ride their own bikes, or use one of the adapted bikes. Children aged under 8 are welcome to use tow bikes, trailers and frame seats. All riders are required to wear a helmet.
