We’ll be spreading the cycling love with lots of free things to do on the day – style your bike at our ‘Tricks & Tunes’ area, take part in our cycling game shows, grab your free Sky Ride bib and get snapped in our photo booth.

Register for Sky Ride York and you’ll be entitled to a free expert bike check (worth £14.99) at Halfords – perfect to get you all set for the big day.
