Get into cycling before 2018

British Cycling are looking to get more people active across the country, and Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland are just three locations with special rides through 2017.

One of the easiest activities to get into, cycling can be done alone or with part of a group and thanks to the HSBC Rides, those group rides are easy to come by. Whether you're looking to get into cycling or just finetune your bike riding abilities, there is something for everyone.

And no matter your level, there is an opportunity to get cycling over the next few months thanks to a number of schemes targetted at getting more people out on the saddle.

HSBC Guided Rides

HSBC UK Guided Rides take the hassle out of organising a bike ride. Trained British Cycling Ride Leaders will show you the way along carefully selected routes – and offer a little friendly support if you need it. Even better, it's completely free to take part.

The rides vary in difficulty from Easygoing pootles around the park to Challenging slogs over the hills, meaning there's a ride for everybody in 2017.

There are 16 different rides running between now and the turn of the year, all in our area. Ranging from 5 miles all the way up to 34, different challenges are available.
