With six months to go until the 2019 OVO Energy Tour of Britain, British Cycling and HSBC UK hope to inspire a nation to take to two wheels with the return of their nation-wide programme of closed-road, city cycling events.

HSBC UK Let’s Ride events will close the roads to traffic in 14 city centres throughout Britain again this summer and throwing cycling festivals for everyone. It’s totally free to take part, you get to see your city from the saddle and it’s a fun, active day out for the whole family! Think stunt shows, street food and endless family-friendly activities.

The series of events will once again tie in closely with local cultural attractions to give participants the unique opportunity to swap their car for the saddle and discover more of their city from a different perspective, on a bike.

The programme aims to demonstrate how cycling can begin to remedy some of the biggest challenges facing the UK today, and is a key part of British Cycling and HSBC UK’s vision to get two million more people on a bike by 2020.
