Description: On Sunday 25 July Southampton will be opening up its streets to cyclists to host the Sky Ride event.
The event offers people, of all ages and abilities, the chance to dust off their bikes and enjoy the sights and sounds of Southampton on a traffic free tour of the city and its great landmarks. A unique experience we hope you won’t forget exploring the city on two wheels.
Sky Ride is a FREE event hosted by Sky in partnership with British Cycling and Southampton City Council with support from the Primary Care Trust. Last year the five Sky Ride events saw more than 110,000 cycling fans flood the streets. Twelve Sky Ride events will take place in 10 major cities across the UK this summer with smaller local rides also taking place across the country. This year is going to be bigger and better with the aim of 10,000 cyclists participating in the Southampton event!
Sky Ride is for everyone, no matter how old you are and no matter how good or bad you are, you can join in! You can ride around the 7 mile route between 10am – 4pm as many times as you like, or you can take it slowly and make a day of it. For cyclists and non- cyclists alike, there will be lots to see and do. It will be a whole festival of fun with something for everyone and you can expect to see a few familiar faces taking part, including some of your favourite personalities as well as GB’s cycling greats. Sky Ride ambassador and chef Jean Christophe Novelli will be attending the Southampton event. There will be some fun cycling challenges and coaches on hand to provide tips and advice.
Sky Ride is by far the greatest excuse to have fun on your bike. As well as providing a unique opportunity to see the city in a new light, it’s a fantastic chance for everyone to ride together with no fear of cars, and enjoy a day of cycling.
