This July will see thousands of cyclists descend on the World Heritage City of Bath in a mass five-mile cycle ride. The event has been organised by British Cycling and Sky and is one of 12 taking place across the country on 25th July 2010.

It is hoped this fantastic event will increase the number of visitors for short break in Bath, allowing them to take part in the bike ride and then be able to enjoy all the attractions the city has to offer. The council, who are helping to organise the event, are hoping that this cycle ride will put the city on the map and will attract many more cyclist to the city. They also hope it will have a knock on affect to the people of Bath and encourage them to cycle more as not only does it help the environment but it is also great for your health. Cycling has been identified as one of the very best methods that people can use to incorporate physical activity into their every day lives.

It’s not just the locals and cycling enthusiasts that can take part, it is also hoped that people on holiday in Bath will also take up the opportunity to get involved. The ride is certainly family friendly as it is non competitive and is open to people of all ages. The cycle ride would be a fantastic family activity that not only helps keep you fit but is also a great way to see the city and will provide plenty of fantastic memories for years to come.
