Leader of Leeds City Council Councillor Keith Wakefield said:

“Sky Ride Leeds was a fantastic event and it was wonderful to see thousands of people of all ages taking part and enjoying the day. Seeing so many people on bikes shows the great level of enthusiasm and interest in cycling in the city and region, so it has been the perfect way to start the next 12 months as we build up to the incredible Grand D├ępart of the Tour de France in Leeds next July.”
