Sky Ride Local rides are great fun for the whole family, and this year kids can pick up some great gifts for taking part – if you’re aged 12 and under, there are some great goodies up for grabs. Register and take part in your first ride and you’ll receive a cool Sky Ride Local sports watch. Keep riding and once you’ve completed three rides, a fantastic backpack will be yours.

Councillor Bernard Peters, Deputy Leader for Service Commissioning, said:
“East Staffordshire Borough Council has been working closely with British Cycling to provide a range of opportunities for cyclists of all abilities to get involved, enjoy the borough and become more active. There are some beautiful areas in East Staffordshire and Sky Ride Local is making the most of them. These rides are a great opportunity for families to join like minded enthusiasts and share in the bike riding experience. Rides range from ‘easygoing’ to ‘challenging,’ so there’s something for everyone”.
