The Sky Ride Local programme of free bike rides are coming to Chorley for budding Bradley Wiggins.

Organised by British Cycling and Sky, with Chorley Council, they offer people the chance to join rides of varying distances and difficulties.

Rides will be held every weekend during the summer.

Caroline Gilbert, British Cycling’s recreation manager for Lancashire, said: “Cycling’s never been more popular, and whatever your age or fitness level, it’s easy to get involved.

“With the Tour de France on our doorstep, now you can do more than just watch the events – be inspired and get involved with Sky Ride Local in Chorley.

“We’re delighted to be working with Chorley Council to make it even easier for local people to get out on their bikes and have some fun this summer.”

Rides include: Buckshaw Village and Astley Park Loop, seven miles starting at 2pm on Sunday at Astley Park; Ramble Round Rivington Reservoirs, 15 miles starting at 10am on Sunday, July 13 at Rivington Barn; Astley Park Potter, three miles starting at 2pm on Sunday, July 20 at Astley Park; and Quirky Back Lanes of the Western Parishes, 22 miles starting at 10am on Sunday, July 27 at Coppull Community Leisure Centre.

There are prizes for anyone taking part in two or more bike rides before August 3.
