With the current excitement surrounding the Tour de France and an historic victory for Great Britain and of course the Olympic Gold , Preston City Council is giving you the chance to win a signed Team Sky replica cycling jersey.
This year is one of the most exciting for cycling as a sport - Team Sky have shown the way in the Tour de France and the Olympics, the nation is set for the biggest ever summer of cycling and Sky Rides have been a huge success here in Preston.
Sky Ride Local rides also run throughout the summer in Preston. These rides are fun, free, community bike rides that offer a great way of getting out and exploring the local area and meeting like-minded people. To join any Sky Ride Local ride, visit www.goskyride.com/preston
For your chance to win this fantastic and sought-after prize signed by members of Team Sky Pro Cycling and join the cycling celebration, all you need to do is take part in as many Sky Ride Local rides as you can between 28 July and 2 September 2012. The person who registered and attended the most rides (or the person picked from the hat if a number of people have taken part in the same number of rides) will be awarded with the signed Team Sky replica cycling jersey. To register for Sky Ride Local rides, visit www.goskyride.com/preston
Cabinet member for advice services, culture and leisure, Councillor Tom Burns, said:
“This is a brilliant competition for people to show their support for cycling in Preston.
“I would like to thank Team Sky and British Cycling for giving Preston City Council the opportunity of promoting this sport in which the UK is dominating at the moment. It’s very exciting that so much cycling prominence is lead by the North West.”
Persons must be registered at www.goskyride.com/preston for each ride to qualify for the competition.
Sky Ride mass participation took place in Preston on Sunday 17 June 2012 and was a huge success, with 7,500 people riding on traffic free roads, around parks and along the River Ribble and parts of the Guild Wheel.
The number of people attending weekly Sky Ride Locals since that date has more than doubled.
Preston also has weekly Breeze women only cycle rides – visit www.goskyride.com/preston for details.
Preston City Council work in partnership with Sky and British Cycling to promote cycling in and around Preston.
The signed jersey has been provided by Sky and comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Team Sky Principal, David Brailsford.
