Free, fun summer cycling in Knowsley with Sky Ride Local

Published on: Tuesday, 20-May-2014

Summer is just about here – and with it comes British Cycling’s Sky Ride Local programme in Knowsley.

The popular programme of rides, guided by trained British Cycling ride leaders, starts in Knowsley on Sunday, 8 June and rides will be taking place all over the borough.

Organised by British Cycling and Sky, in partnership with Knowsley Council, Sky Ride Local offers local people the chance to join organised, guided rides of varying distances and difficulties – ranging from easygoing spins around picturesque parts of Knowsley, through to ‘steady’ and ‘challenging’ rides, for those seeking a little more adventure.

Andrew McCormick, Knowsley Council’s Director of Community and Leisure, said “Cycling has never been more popular, and whatever your age or fitness level, it’s easy to get involved. The Sky Rides programme offer a range of levels so there is something for everyone. The programme is completely free of charge, so sign up today and not only enjoy the scenic borough on two wheels, but get fit at the same time!”
