Thousands of cyclists have taken advantage of Leeds city centre being closed to traffic today for fourth and final Leeds Sky Ride
The free event aims to get riders of all ages and abilities to try cycling on a traffic free route. Previous years have proved to be very successful attracting more than 8,000 participants.
The 6.5km route takes riders passed historic city buildings from the University of Leeds to the Town Hall and Civic Hall. Riders can challenge family or friends in the Sprint Zone on the Headrow, watch mountain bike stunts at the Tricks and Tunes zone at Woodhouse Moor, and find out more about cycling opportunities in Leeds at the Hub on Millennium Square.
"Sky Ride is a fantastic event for people of all ages to get on their bike and experience the joy of cycling. This is the fourth year that it will be coming to Leeds and it is great to see people of all abilities build confidence on their bikes in a fun and safe city centre route, whilst having the chance to take in some of Leeds most iconic city centre buildings.
Having hosted the Tour de France Grand Départ in 2014 and featured in events such Tour de Yorkshire, and Sky Ride, Leeds is well and truly on the global cycling map. We are looking forward to moving forward with one of the key elements of our future cycling strategy, which will aim to provide more opportunities for people to get involved and enjoy the sport."
It's the final year that the Sky Rides will be held but organisers say they have big plans for something new for cyclists next year.
