Portsmouth residents are being urged to get on their bikes and take part in free guided rides throughout the summer as part of the council’s partnership with British Cycling and Sky.
Starting on Sunday 14 June a total of 20 Sky Ride Local rides will be held, which will see trained British Cycling ride leaders guide groups across distances from three miles up to more adventurous 30 mile routes.
One of the ride leaders is Roger Inkpen. He says:”these rides are suitable for all abilities. We go at an easy pace to allow riders to chat and take in the views. We hope this will encourage more people to get fitter and healthier in their everyday lives.”
