Spaces still available for free led bike rides in Lincoln

By NickiBlake on May 7th, 2014 - comments

There is still a chance to register for free British Cycling led bike rides in and around Lincoln.

In partnership with Skyride Local, Active Lincolnshire is encouraging individuals, families and groups to get fit and meet new people by dusting off their bikes throughout the summer months and take to the saddle.

Skyride Local events are open to everyone and they’re organised and guided by British Cycling trained Ride Leaders, who are on hand to offer encouragement and support throughout. There are rides for all ages, with varying levels from easy-going through to more challenging rides.

British Cycling Ride Leader Ray Whitehouse said: “These rides are not only a great form of exercise, they are a great chance to meet new people. There are so many opportunities to get out on your bike with Sky Ride Local and enjoy Lincolnshire’s fantastic countryside. As well as the family-friendly easy-going and steady rides, the challenging rides can really give you an idea of what it is like to take on the hills and push yourself – just like the pro riders!”
