KIRKLEES residents will be able to get involved in the cycle mania sweeping Yorkshire with a number of Sky Rides taking place over the summer.

British Cycling and Kirklees Council are running a series of free bike rides in the coming weeks, ideal for people inspired by the Tour De France.

British Cycling has found the best routes, trained friendly Ride Leaders to guide and picked places to visit along the way. There will be three different levels on offer, making the rides ideal for people of all abilities.
