Join us for free bike rides this summer


Sky Ride Plymouth

Sky Ride Plymouth

Anyone looking for free activities this summer can take advantage of the various Sky Ride Plymouth bike rides happening across the city from Sunday 26 July until Sunday 9 August.
Sky Ride Plymouth local rides are great fun for individuals and the whole family, providing the perfect opportunity to explore the local area and to keep active.

All rides are organised and guided by British Cycling trained ride leaders, who are on hand to offer encouragement and support. There are rides for all ages with different levels available from easygoing to more challenging rides.

Plymouth’s Cycling Commissioner, Councillor Phillippa Davey said: “The joy of these events is that all you have to do is turn up with your bike and join in. They are completely free and fully organised, with something in the programme for everyone. We have some lovely cycle routes across the city and if you have never been on them before, then this is a fun way to explore the area guided by someone who knows the route.”

The first ride takes places on Sunday 26 July, meeting at 10am and departing from Coypool park and ride car park. This ride will be a steady ride along the Plym Estuary.

Breeze, a British Cycling initiative that encourages women to get fit and have fun on their bikes, are also taking place throughout the summer.
