York is offering a new programme of free guided cycle tours over the next three months, according to local paper The Press.

The programme, organised by Cycling City York, is targeting a wide demographic of the city’s population and is aimed at getting them on their bikes. Some of the rides will run as 'awaydays' with transport laid on to take cyclists to Dalby Forest, near Pickering on July 11th.

Paul Ramskill, of Cycling City York, said: “Some of the shorter rides take just 30 to 45 minutes to complete, so they are suitable for young children.

“There are intermediate rides for those who want to cycle a little further, as well as longer rides for more confident cyclists."

York is one of 12 UK cities and towns to be awarded Cycling City status. The city received £3.68 million to invest in raising cyclist numbers.
