Me and Sky Ride...

The last time I got on a bike I was two months pregnant. My dad had kindly bought me a new bike for my 29th birthday to cheer me up, and I was giving it a spin. I cycled about ten miles, got lost, bought a bottle of water, asked someone for directions, got lost again, then eventually found my way home. A few days later I found out I was pregnant and I am ashamed to say I have never been on a bike since. My son is now 4 years old.

So I am going to brave it, and attempt this years Sky Ride in our local city of Bradford.  Here is some info (this isn't a sponsored post, I just want to help promote something I think is great for families and healthy living).

"Sky got together with British Cycling four years ago to inspire the nation to become fans of cycling, and to make it easier than ever before to ride for the sheer fun of it. Together, they created Sky Ride to help people – whatever their age or ability – to get on their bikes and have fun. They offer free bike rides across the country from mass-participation events to weekly local rides. Visit the website to watch a video of one of last year’s rides.

A Sky Ride City event in partnership with British Cycling will be happening in Bradford on Sunday 1st July. British Cycling are passionate about getting people on their bike and having some fun, even if you’re just an occasional cyclist; they believe a blogger like you could inspire them with some great ideas and exciting stories about getting your kids into cycling and your favourite places to go for a ride in your local area. The Sky Rides have been hugely successful and are a fantastic event for everyone to enjoy."

So I'm going to give it a go, I'm taking my oldest son and we are going to go for a good old bike ride together. He still has his stabilisers on, I might need mine.
