Today my friends, husband and I took part in the Skyride in Hull and it was the most beautiful day. Skyride is a national campaign from Sky and British Cycling created to inspire everyone whatever their age or ability to get on their bikes. This includes an aim to get 1 million people cycling regularly by 2013.
Skyride closed off the streets to motorists between 10am - 4pm so cyclists could cycle freely around the city centre. It was a great way to spend a sunny Sunday with friends, explore the city centre of Hull including such places as The Deep, shared with a few drinks at the end of the day at Fruit and Pave :-)

I think the overall message from the day was, get on your bike, its free and good for you :-)
