PEOPLE across the borough are invited to get on their bikes as another popular programme of Sky Rides moves into gear.

Organised by British Cycling and Sky in partnership with Dudley Council, the Sky Ride Local programme provides everyone with chance to join in guided cycle rides to suit all abilities.

The wheels were set in motion on Sunday June 15 with a 12-mile cycle ride from the Dell Stadium in Brierley Hill followed by an easygoing traffic free ride around Saltwells Wood in the afternoon - ahead of a more challenging Kinver Kimber and the steadier Coseley West Loop both of which will ake place this Sunday (June 22).

Further guided rides in June include the Kingswinford Urban Escape and the Black Country Water Ride on Sunday June 29.

All the Sky Ride Local events are led by British Cycling trained ride leaders

There are a total of 25 organised rides organised to take place throughout the borough this summer - all of which are free to join.

Funding for a two-year programme has been provided through NHS Dudley's Clinical Commissioning Group.
