    Peter Simmonds Hi I'm Peter and welcome to Skyrides. I love cycling and cycle several times a week either commuting or riding out with a group. Sky Ride aims to get more people out on their bikes. More cyclists will mean safer streets, better health and less pollution. If you are reading this because you have signed up for the ride - looking forward to meeting you there.
