Thousands of people are set to descend on Sheffield in celebration of all things cycling for Sky Ride Sheffield on Sunday 5 July. You can book your free space here.

One of 15 major events taking places across the country this summer, Sky Ride Sheffield will be a brilliant day out, with something for everyone.

Returning for its second year and timed to coincide with the anniversary of the Tour de France coming to Sheffield in 2014, Sky Ride Sheffield 2015 is sure to be an event not to be missed.

Whether you are looking to challenge family and friends in the Sprint Zone, find out more about cycling opportunities in Sheffield or just want to enjoy the music, entertainment and competitions, it’s all on offer along with a traffic-free route to ride through the centre of Sheffield.

It doesn’t matter how old you are, how old your bike it, or how fast you ride – at Sky Ride Sheffield it’s all about getting on your bike and having fun.

Sky Ride Ambassador Sir Chris Hoy said: “We want more people to enjoy riding a bike – that’s why Sky and British Cycling have teamed up to bring you Sky Ride. We’ve made it easier than ever to get out on your bike and spend quality time with your family and friends.”

“Sky Rides close towns and cities for big bike events so you can ride safely on traffic-free streets, with a huge festival atmosphere and loads to do both on and off the bike. They are great fun and a great way to get on your bike.”

Bike experts at Halfords are also offering a free bike safety check (worth £14.99) to everyone who registers for Sky Ride Sheffield, and they’ll be there on the day to help out with last-minute problems too.

Sky Ride is not the only chance to get cycling in Sheffield this summer. A packed schedule of guided rides, including Sky Ride Local rides led by British Cycling-trained Ride Leaders, and women-only Breeze rides mean you are never too far from a bike ride.

Sky Ride Sheffield rolls into town on Sunday 5 July. To be part of this fun, free celebration of cycling, register now.
