Gethin Jones gets behind Sky Ride Local

We're delighted that TV presenter Gethin Jones is our Sky Ride Local ambassador this year, encouraging people of all ages and abilities to get out on their bikes.

Sky Ride Local rides are fun, free community bike rides that offer a great way of getting out and exploring your local area and meeting like-minded people.

British Cycling trained ride leaders – friendly local volunteers who love bike riding and want to share that enthusiasm – guide groups of around 16-24 people along a variety of fascinating rural and urban routes. They’re on hand to provide friendly encouragement and guidance, whatever your age or ability.

Gethin, a keen cyclist who's been involved with Sky Ride for three years, will be taking part in several Sky Ride Locals around the country this year.

Gethin said 'Everyone's invited, so make sure you join a Sky Ride Local near you this summer.'
