Top Tory Lord (Norman) Tebbit's 'get on your bike' comment is very well-known. Now a local politician Coun Carl Sherwood, Cabinet Member of North Lincolnshire Council and a former Town Mayor of Brigg, is urging people in the area to get astride their cycles. You may well have seen the Sky Ride local bike ride posters (eg near the Atherton Way/Barnard Avenue roundabout).
The local programme offers a series of free, fun, guided bike rides until the end of September.
Coun Carl - Cabinet member for Customer Services, Sport and Leisure - said: “Sky Ride local bike rides are a great way for all the family to get out and about in North Lincolnshire. The rides have been very popular so far and I’m sure with the summer months ahead more people will want to join in. It’s great that more dates were added to the Sky Ride local bike ride timetable, giving more people the chance to take part.
“The bike rides are suitable for all abilities and you can ride at your own pace. Make sure you register on the Sky Ride website to join in.”
If you would like to join in the Sky Ride local bike rides you will need to register and book your place at www.goskyride.com.
