Tour de Yorkshire: Women's Park-to-Park ride, with Well North and Onna Bike
On Sunday 30 April 2017 the Tour de Yorkshire will leave Bradford on stage three of the world-renowned professional cycling race. The race will make its way from the centre of Bradford towards Fox Valley in Sheffield. The same weekend, the Tour de Yorkshire Women's race goes from Tadcaster to Harrogate. Sponsors of the Women's Elite race, Well North and Brewin Dolphin, are pleased to announce an open public ride for women in Bradford. This will be supported by Cycling UK and is being organised by local Community Cycling Club Onna Bike.
The ride will be just under three miles long and at a steady pace, designed for beginners. It will follow on from the Elite Men's race on Sunday 30 April, on closed roads, leaving Lister Park in Bradford and finishing at Roberts Park in Saltaire. The aim is to have at least 200 female riders and there will be a free commemorative T-shirt provided to all riders on the day.
Although the ride will not be exclusive in any way, Well North have expressed particular interest in generating participation within the Asian women’s audience, so we will be targeting various community projects and groups to address this aim. We would welcome interest from women in Bradford and the surrounding area particularly, but we are keen to get more people cycling so any beginners are welcome. There will be bikes provided where possible, though these are limited so please do bring your own bike should you have one. If you do bring a bike please make sure it is in good working order. We can also arrange free cycle training to new cyclists in advance of the event. Please do help spread the word!
To book your place on the ride please complete the consent form below and email it to Mumtaz Khan of Onna Bike. Contact details below. You will receive confirmation and instructions for the day in the coming weeks. Postal copies can be arranged, please call Mumtaz in this case.
We look forward to seeing you on the day to help celebrate cycling in Bradford, inspired by the Tour de Yorkshire!
