Sky Ride Bath sees thousands take to Bath's streets


Around 6,000 cyclists took part in a mass bike ride through Bath on Sunday, 25 July.

Many of the city's streets were closed along the route of the 8km (5 mile) ride.

Organisers say the event's main aim was to give families the experience of cycling in a safe environment, whilst encouraging the use of pedal power over other transport.

Lynda Deane from Bath and North East Somerset Council was one of those behind the Sky Ride Bath event.
