Issued by City of York Council
City of York Council and British Cycling are giving 100 lucky residents the chance to be part of the 2013 Men’s and Women’s British Cycling National Circuit Race Championships.
On Sunday 21 July four Sky Ride Local rides will take local residents and families into the city centre for a once in a lifetime cycle race experience.
Riders will be able to enjoy a gentle ride into the city; all riders will then take part in a lap of the elite route alongside British Cycling Ride Leaders.
Cllr Sonja Crisp, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for residents to get involved with the National Circuit Race Championships in York. I hope people will be cheering the riders along and getting a small taste of what it will be like when Stage two of Le Grand Depart 2014 sets off from York, this time next year.”
The four Sky Ride Local rides kick off a fantastic summer of cycling opportunities in York, with guided rides taking place most weekends until the end of September.
