My First Sky Ride

Assembling for the ride
I went along to my first Sky Ride on Saturday. The Go Sky Ride adverts have been hard to miss in recent weeks and I was keen to find out what they were all about.

The registration process was easy and the search facility which enables you to find local rides worked well. I liked the way in which the rides have been graded – for example “Ride Strong” which gives some guidance on the likely speed at which riders will ride as well as an idea of the terrain and the distance, so that you have an idea as to what sort of ride you are going on. There are a good range of rides from short family rides to women only rides and also longer and more demanding rides.
