Dates set for three London Skyrides in 2010

photo One central London and two local mass cycling events will take place in 2010.

Three Skyride events will take place in the capital in 2010, including a central London event on Sunday 5 September.

Two local Skyrides will take place in Ealing on 18 July, and Redbridge on 15 August.

Last year, the main event saw 12 miles of roads in Zone 1 were closed to motor traffic, encouraging 65,000 cyclists on to the streets, while over 10,000 attended a local Skyride in Hounslow.

Holding an annual mass cycling event in London was the brainchild of David Love, LCC Board member, and LCC has been heavily involved since the first Freewheel took place in 2007.

LCC led over 3500 cyclists from the suburbs into central London for last year's main event.
