Loads to do at Sky Ride Birmingham

Sky Ride Birmingham route

Sky Ride Birmingham on Sunday 19 August is going to be a great opportunity to join in a huge traffic-free bike ride – but even if you don't want to join the ride, there's plenty to do on the day.

There'll be a range of entertainment all around the route, with Activity Areas at the University of Birmingham Campus (below) and the Optima Community Association, from 10.00am until 4.00pm for everyone who wants to enjoy the atmosphere without getting on a bike.

With BMX displays, an Art Attack area and our Bike Cafe at the University campus and a DJ and face painters at the Optima Community Association there's loads for the whole family to do. Also there will be bike repairs, music bikes and egg and spoon races.

There'll also be a chance for youngsters to have a go at racing their bikes. Go-Ride Racing is British Cycling's exciting entry level competition programme which offers local competition for novice cyclists under the age of 16, helping young people make a gradual transition into competitive cycling. There'll be free races taking place throughout the day at Sky Ride Birmingham, and they're all aimed at novice racing cyclists.

Don't forget if you'd like to join the ride, you can register for free here and be in with a chance of winning some great prizes.
