Sky Ride Plymouth

Thousands turn out for Sky Ride

Thousands of people took to the streets on their bikes at Sky Ride for its fourth consecutive year.

As sea of yellow bibs could be seen as people of all ages set off on the free eight-kilometre circular ride hosted by Plymouth City Council, British Cycling and Sky.

The event was opened by the Lord Mayor Designate, Dr John Mahoney, and local pro-cyclist Charlotte Green. Charlotte, a member of the Great Britain Cycling Team joined the team's Olympic Academy Programme in 2013 and has since had some promising results at world cup level. She recently gained fourth place at the opening round of the 2014 BMX Supercross World Cup in Manchester

Lots of families turned out for the bike ride. Starting at the National Trust's spectacular Saltram House. Participants were treated to a whole host of activities and entertainment throughout the day with extreme mountain bike shows, BMX stunts and Go-Ride.
