Chance to get on your bike!

Have your say

BUDDING bikers across the Filey area are being urged to get into gear for a huge cycling challenge.

The Go Ride Racing event will take place in Filey Country Park on Sunday, March 18.

The event - part of British Cycling’s programme - aims to give young riders the opportunity to compete in a race against cyclists of their own age and ability.

There will be classes for children across a number of age ranges, with competitions for under-eights, under-10s, under-12s and under-14s.

The event comes after British cycling star and 2012 Olympic hopeful Lizzie Armitstead visited Hunmanby last year to pass on advice and encourage children to take up the sport.

She added: “When I first started cycling people thought it was a secret society but it’s changing now and if there is anyone thinking of getting into the sport, I would really urge them to give it a go.”
