Derby Cycling Programme Pedals to Success at Cycling Industry Awards

Sky Ride – the series of recreational cycling events and local rides from British Cycling and Sky – won the 'Cycling Advocacy' title at Wednesday's Bike Biz Awards.


In partnership with Derby City Council, the Sky Ride campaign has seen thousands of local residents dust off their bikes and get involved. Sky Ride Local rides, led by trained British Cycling Ride Leaders kept residents pedalling throughout the summer.
Sky Ride beat stiff competition from the likes of Big Pedal (Sustrans/Bike Hub), Get Britain Cycling report (All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group), and The Times' Cycling petition.
