On your bikes! New season of Sky Rides start in Bournemouth next month

First published in News

A NEW season of Sky Ride Local bike rides will start in Bournemouth next month.

The free, guided bike rides are aimed at families and friends who want to explore the local area on two wheels and will take place throughout the summer.

There are rides for all ages and abilities, ranging from easy routes to more challenging rides.

All rides are organised and guided by British Cycling-trained ride leaders, who are on hand to offer encouragement and support throughout.

Cllr Michael Filer, cabinet member for transport, said: “This is a fantastic initiative for everyone, from the beginner to the more experienced cyclist.

“Sky Ride Local rides are free, fun and healthy activities which makes them a great day out for families too.

“I would encourage anybody with a bike to make the most of this scheme and try a Sky Ride Local this summer.”

For the first Sky Ride of the season, on Sunday, June 1, residents can try either an easy-going ‘Discover the Dunes’ ride, or for a steadier pace, ‘Sandbanks or Bust’.

More adventurous cyclists can test themselves with a more challenging ‘Into the Forest’ ride on Sunday, June 8.
