About Cycling

The saying goes that you never forget how to ride a bicycle, but you could learn how to ride it in a new way! Bicycles were introduced in the 19th century and now number around 1 billion worldwide.

There are various types of recreational cycling activities that anyone can get involved in, including bicycle touring for sightseeing, organised rides, mountain biking and even racing.

Cycling is a sport that a vast majority of people can take part in, and it is great for cardiovascular fitness and owing to it's low level impact on the joints, it is also a good sport for those with lower limb and joint problems and for rehabilitation.

The governing body for Cycling in the UK is British Cycling, and their website www.britishcycling.org.uk holds some great information on what they do and cycling as a sport.

For information on the new cycling initiative, Sky Ride, to get more people cycling, and for details of Sky Ride's in your area, visit www.goskyride.com
