Sky Ride Local comes to Liverpool

Summer is here so it’s time to dust off your bike and enjoy the sights and sounds of Liverpool on two wheels.

The popular Sky Ride Local bike rides, guided by trained British Cycling ride leaders, come for the first time to Liverpool on Sunday 8 June. Organised by British Cycling and Sky, in partnership with Liverpool City 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 Liverpool, through to ‘steady’ and ‘challenging’ rides, for those seeking a little more adventure.

Peter Haymes, British Cycling’s Recreation Manager for Liverpool, said: ‘Cycling’s never been more popular, and whatever your age or fitness level, it’s easy to get involved. We’re delighted to be working with Liverpool City Council to make it even easier for local people to get out on their bikes and have some fun this summer.’

British Cycling’s Sky Ride events in Liverpool are a fantastic opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to get involved in cycling.’
