Meet the Ride Leaders

  • Martin Bujdoso Martin Bujdoso Hi
    Welcome to Sky Rides.
    I have been cycling for many years and enjoy all cycling activities especially getting more people of all ages cycling and coming on a Sky Ride is a great way to get out on your bike, meet other cyclists and have fun.
    I became a ride leader in 2012 for both on and off road rides.
    I work as a road safety tutor delivering Bikeability to school children.
  • Mike Ball Mike Ball Have been cycling for many years both as an all weathers commuter and a member of the Leicester Spokes cycling (http://www.leicesterspokes.org.uk) group. I particularly enjoy cycle touring in Scotland and Europe, and longer rides such as our annual overnight ride from London to Leicester. My ambitions are to cycle across the USA and China, perhaps all the way around the world? I try to use my bike for most trips and want to encourage people to look on bike travel as everyday transport, not just something for the weekend. I look forward to meeting you on a ride.
