Meet Team Sky's Ben Swift at Sky Ride York

Ben Swift 

We’re delighted to announce that Team Sky cyclist Ben Swift will be attending Sky Ride York this Saturday 14 September. 

Following his stage wins at the Tour Down Under and the Tour of California in 2011, Ben won the World Championship Men’s Scratch Race in 2012, becoming Britain’s first ever World Scratch Champion.

Ben said: ‘Coming from Yorkshire, I am thrilled to be part of Sky Ride York this weekend. It’s a great opportunity to cycle around the city on traffic-free streets and should be a really fun event. There’s so much going on in Yorkshire and with Le Grand Depart in 2014, there’s never been a better time to be on your bike. Look forward to seeing you all there!’

Sky Ride York is a free event for cyclists of all ages and abilities that will take in some of York’s most famous landmarks, including Clifford’s Tower and York Minster. There’s still time to register to take part for free.
