On Y’er Bike! Here Wiggo again!
Knowsley’s BMX track and velodrome give you even more opportunities to get on your bike and enjoy the last of the summer weather!
Active knowsley have really pulled out all the stops on this one and you can now hire BMX bikes, helmets, and safety equipment, as well as get tips from experienced coaches at the BMX track.
You can also hire the track and equipment for birthday parties.(see http://www.activeknowsley.com or ring 443 3540)
Knowsley are working hard with British Cycling and Sky to get more people cycling. The Sky Ride programme which I have been following, trains local people to plan new routes and lead scenic rides in the area.
These rides are free and offer something for everyone- whether you’re building your confidence or are already comfortable on a bike and looking for a challenge.
As well as all this cycling for all; final preparations are well underway for the UK’s biggest professional bike race- The Tour of Britain on Tuesday 17th September.
Knowsley will be hosting Stage 3 of the event, which is an individual time trial. Over one hundred of the world’s top cyclists will be competing against the clock along a 10-mile circuit in the borough, starting and finishing at Knowsley Safari Park.
Olympic gold medallist Sir Bradley Wiggins will be heading for Liverpool and the Tour de France winner will be leading the Sky Pro Cycling team. What an opportunity to cheer on this hero!!!!
The time trial will help to celebrate 10 years of The Tour of Britain, so this really is a race not to be missed!!!!!
