British Cycling: getting you back on your bike
Published 12 May 2011
British Cycling loves cycling. As the National Governing Body for cycling we want to get as many people into riding bikes for fun, to work or for sport.
Our partnership with BSkyB is putting us in the best position to get one million more people cycling once a month or more. Whether it’s a fun family bike ride at the weekend, a journey into work, a visit to the park or to meet friends at the local cafe – we want to support your bike riding.
All the programmes that we run are designed to be inclusive and easy to access. goskyride.com is the home of our Sky Ride campaign – full of information, support, activities and events to help you get into cycling.
We hope that your experience of going on a Sky Ride Local, joining the Breeze network or coming on one of our Bike Maintenance Workshops will inspire you to cycle more often.
We’ve supported thousands of people to become new regular cyclists. We want to help 125,000 people become regular, once a week or more cyclists by 2013.
The key success of our programmes to date is ensuring they’re suitable for all abilities. We’re always looking to respond to bike riders’ needs, so if you have any ideas on how to improve any of our rides or events or membership of British Cycling, please contact us.
At British Cycling we don’t stand still. We’re working with many partners to design and develop new programmes that will motivate more people to get on their bikes. From time to time we need your thoughts and opinions to help our planning and we’re grateful to everyone who supports our surveys and questionnaires throughout the year.
