Yesterday (Sunday July 3rd) 15,500 people took part in Birmingham's mass participation, traffic-free Skyride with Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton and TV presenter Lorraine Kelly.

Locals rode the four and half-mile route, organised by Sky and British Cycling, one of many similar events taking part over the course of the summer.

The two are also holding two bike maintenance workshops in Birmingham later this month (July 15th and 16th) in an effort to help people stick with cycling.

British Cycling is also holding 'Breeze' rides for women on a smaller scale in local areas.

British Cycling have put together a video on the Birmingham ride.
