Residents are being invited to get on their bikes and join free organised cycle rides during the summer holidays.

With the final stage of the Aviva Women’s Tour held in Dacorum in June, British Cycling and Sky, in partnership with Dacorum Borough Council, are encouraging everyone to get inspired and get involved with Sky Ride Local in the area.

The Aviva Women’s Tour, which not only brought the world’s best women riders into the borough, but the grand finale was held in Gadebridge Park.

If the Aviva Women’s Tour inspired you to dust off your bike and go for a ride, British Cycling is running a series of free bike rides to get you pedalling this summer.

Cllr Neil Harden, portfolio holder for resident and corporate services, said: “Around 5,000 cycling enthusiasts gathered in Dacorum to show their support and enjoy the final of the Aviva Women’s Tour in June. If you were inspired by the talented riders, get on your bike and book onto one of Sky Ride’s or Breeze’s guided rides near you today.”

With Sky Ride Local, all the planning has been done for you. British Cycling has found the best routes, trained up friendly ride leaders to guide and support you, and picked some cracking places to visit along the way.

With three different levels on offer, you certainly don’t need to be a pro rider to take part! There’s something for everyone – whether you’re building your confidence or looking to stretch your legs on a cycling challenge.

The next rides are:

Sunday, August 2, 10am; Hemel Hempstead - Local Pride - 16 miler.

Sunday, August 9, 10am; Berkhamsted - Wildlife & wilderness - 9 miler
