Bradford Sky Ride event wins top honour
5:40pm Monday 30th September 2013 in News
The national cycling programme behind Bradford’s Sky Ride has picked up an industry award.
Sky Ride, the series of recreational cycling events and local rides from British Cycling and Sky, won the ‘Cycling Advocacy’ title at the Bike Biz Awards.
The campaign was behind Sky Ride Bradford, which gave thousands of local people the chance to join a traffic-free bike ride this summer.
It also organises local rides, in partnership with Bradford Council and West Yorkshire Metro.
Stewart Kellett, British Cycling’s director of recreation and partnerships, said: “The award is great recognition of everything that we have achieved and continue to achieve. I would like to thank all the supporting local authorities, participants, ride leaders and volunteers.”
Cycling opportunities in Bradford include Breeze bike rides for women and social cycling groups. Visit goskyride.com/Bradford for information.
