Saddle up for Cycle - MK

BATTLING businessmen and stunt riders will be saddling up for a weekend of fun and fitness in the city to mark Cycle-MK.

Cycle-MK is an event to promote fitness by demonstrating the fun of cycling and how easy it is to get around by using the city's unrivalled Redway cycle routes - one of the best cycle networks in the UK.

The two-day cycling spectacular event starts at 9am on Saturday, June 16th with a number of events including a Battle of Profession where local firms will take part in a racing contest on static bikes.

Other events include thecentre:MK inter-shop race and a distance static cycle challenge to visitors to the exhibition held at the shopping centre's Middleton Hall.

While on Sunday from 11am, top BMX rider Richard Johnson will also be demonstrating his formidable skills when the local RJ Ride Guide Riders put on display of ramp jumps, bunny hops and wheelies.

Ceri Griffin, the council's cycling 'spokes' man said: "It looks set to be a brilliant two days with all sorts of events for everyone.

"We would urge people of all ages to get over there, because there's loads of stuff going on."

Also throughout the weekend there will be a cycling exhibition including:

  • A display of historical bikes by MK Museum
  • Cycling routes information from SUSTRANS and CTC.
  • Advice from mountain bike instructor Helen Powell
  • Information about a Cancer research Bike Ride in September.
