British Cycling and Sky have unveiled an expanded calendar of Sky Ride events for 2011, kicking off with Sky Ride Bath on June 5.

The free-to-enter mass participation rides take place across the UK on traffic-free roads. Families are encouraged to take part, and more than 200,000 people turned up to Sky Rides in 2010.

"Sky Ride 2011 is going to be even better than before and together with British Cycling we're well on our way to getting one million people back on their bikes cycling more regularly," Jeremy Darroch, Sky's chief executive said.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
