This year’s Sky Ride takes place on Sunday 4 September and allows Londoners the chance to cycle a 7.2 mile route through London without encountering any traffic. This yearâ€™s route brings the riders close to the London Eye before heading over Westminster Bridge, past the Palace of Westminster, onto the Mall, through Trafalgar Square, and along the Embankment towards the Tower of London.
Boris said: â€œLondon’s fantastic Sky Ride is going from strength to strength, helping people of all ages and experience to enjoy the capital’s most iconic sights on two wheels.
â€œI urge people to dust off their saddles for this free and family-friendly event to enjoy whizzing through the city on traffic free roads. This is a key part of my cycling revolution which aims to make London a cycle-friendly city, encouraging more and more people that pedal power is the way forward.â€
Ms Brook added: â€œCycling is a fun way to spend time with friends and keep in shape. This will be my third year supporting the Mayor of Londonâ€™s Sky Ride and I canâ€™t wait for the 4th September to come around.
â€œItâ€™s such a fantastic way to get out on your bike and enjoy the sights of the capital in your own time, with friends or family. Plus there is loads of stuff going on throughout the day to enjoy on and off your bike. So what are you waiting for? Come down and join me for a fun-packed family day out!â€
Alright, Kelly. Go on, then.
