As someone who’s not hugely confident cycling in traffic, last year’s inaugural Sky Ride was the perfect opportunity for me to cycle around York’s streets without any pesky cars to worry about. In fact the whole family enjoyed the carnival atmosphere and the kids loved waving at spectators from their tag-along. Around 5,500 other riders of all ages and abilities took part too.
So we think it’s brilliant news that the event was such a success that it’s coming back for 2014. On Sunday 14th September, York will turn traffic-free again. As well as the chance for a relaxing cycle ride, there’ll be extreme challenges, music, entertainment and competitions. The first 1,000 people to sign up online will receive a limited edition Sky Ride gift on arrival at the event. Not ones to miss out on a free gift, we’ve already registered. Who’s next?
