Sheffield is in the list of host cities for a major cycling event as the city was supported by Chris Hoy, the Olympic Hero.
Sheffield is one among the 13 cities in the UK to host a cycle ride event in this summer. This event is to encourage people of all ages to ride their bikes.
The event will be conducted by British Cycling in partnership with HSBC. This cycling promoting event is scheduled for 16th of July and it will take place at city center. Apart from the cycling course, there will be stalls to promote the cycling habit. The exact route will be announced later.
British Cycling and HSBC want to make cycling the most popular sports choice and activity in the UK. The target is to make 2 million people use bikes by 2020. Giles Morgan, HSBC’s global head of sponsorship feels that by encouraging more people to cycle, they will be able to create a greener, happier and healthier nation.
