Sky Ride Plymouth 2014

For the third consecutive year thousands of people took to the streets of Plymouth on their bikes to enjoy traffic free cycling. One of sixteen major events taking place across the country this summer, Sky Ride Plymouth was a brilliant day out.

Opened by Plymouth's Special Olympians gold and bronze medallists, Elizabeth Haywood and Steven Dodd the free event hosted by Plymouth City Council, British Cycling and Sky allowed riders of all ages and abilities to ride at their own pace, stopping off at well-known landmarks on the way. Starting at the Hoe, the circular route travelled along the waterfront, West Hoe, Millbay, Stonehouse and the Royal William Yard.

Participants were treated to a whole host of activities and entertainment throughout the day with unicycle workshops and displays, BMX stunt shows, Go-Ride sprint sessions and bike basic workshops. Check out the photo gallery below.

The event kick starts our fantastic programme of free local bike rides taking place across the city every week until November.

To find out about our free local bike rides visit our Sky Ride Local page or the Sky Ride website. Keep an eye out for Social Cycling Groups and Breeze bike rides for women too!
