Almost 600 adults and children took part in organised bike rides in Warwick District last year under a scheme run by the county council.

More than 220 took part in the council’s Sky Ride Local guided bike rides, led by British Cycling volunteers, while over 200 took part in other group rides and more than 120 female cyclists went out on rides with British Cycling’s Breeze scheme.

A survey by Sport England showed that three times as many people were cycling last summer compared to the same period in 2012.
