Sky Ride Middlesbrough logo

A series of free bike rides in and around Middlesbrough for cyclists of all abilities starts this Sunday (July 17).

Sky Ride Local Rides are fun, friendly and free community bike rides that help people get out and explore their local area.

They’re led by a British Cycling trained ride leader who can provide support and give tips, whatever age or ability.

Sky Ride events started in Middlesbrough last year and have been hugely popular.

Almost 4,000 people turned out at the main Sky Ride event last weekend.

The Sky Ride local routes this weekend include the Riverside Ramble, a 7.4 mile scenic ride along the River Tees, and the Open Spaces of Middlesbrough, a quicker 7.3 mile ride across Ormesby and the east of Middlesbrough.

A total of 25 Sky Ride local rides are happening in Middlesbrough over the coming months.

Sky Ride, in partnership with British Cycling, has the aim of boosting cycling’s popularity across the U.K and having one million people cycling regularly by 2013.

The Sky Ride local rides are completely free of charge and are open to everyone. However, spaces are limited and are on a first come first served basis.
