On Sunday, 8 July the HSBC-Let’s Ride family event comes to Bristol city centre. It’s completely free, you get to see your city in a different way and it’s a fun, active, family-friendly day out.

After watching the races, from 1.30pm you can ride the 5-6k city centre route, traffic free, for as long or as little as you like. Expect a festival atmosphere of music, food and fun. Bring your bike or hire one at the event. Try a YoBike, get your face on the telly and grab a podium photo!
