Loads to do at Sky Ride Leicester
Published 12 August 2012
Sky Ride Leicester on Sunday 26 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 Abbey Park, the Town Hall Square and the Mercury Car Park, from 10.00am until 4.00pm for everyone who wants to enjoy the atmosphere without getting on a bike.
With BMX displays at Abbey Park, an Art Attack area at the Town Hall Square and a Scootability trail at the Mercury Car Park there's loads for the whole family to do. Also there will be a bike Cafe, live music and Dr Bike.
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 Leicester, 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.
