British Cycling & Sky establish Ride Social

December 4, 2014

Elite cycling squad Team Sky have joined hands with British Cycling to launch a new community based website Ride Social. The novel initiative is themed to help out cycling enthusiasts to build up their very own riding communities.

The internet system permits cyclists to create profiles that would permit them to organize as well as join up bike riding events around their locality.

Ride Social is a follow up of the rebranding of the old popular Social Cycling Groups website and comes up with a brand new name, style and logo. The new site from Team Sky & Brit Cycling collaboration already boasts 50 thousand users, along with nine hundred and fifty groups organizing as many as 3,000 rides.

“We are simply delighted to be able to create a space for the riders, irrespective of abilities to be friends, create groups as well as get out & ride in their way”, stated Stewart Kellett, the recreation & partnerships director of British Cycling. “Ride Social is aimed to be a big add-on to our existent ride programmes, the Sky Ride Local guided cycling rides & Breeze women bike rides.”

British Cycling & Team Sky seem to have high hopes and grand plans for Ride Social and they are taking some really phenomenal initiatives to make the website popular in the cycling world. To celebrate launch of the new cycling community themed website, both the collaborators are jointly offering the riding enthusiasts a very rare opportunity to earn a ride with one of the Team Sky pros.

All one needs here is a ride creation on the Ride Social which takes place in between November 14, 2014 to February 15, 2015, invite as many local cyclists possible to join the ride, get a selfie of oneself & the group on ride -& share it on popular social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #ridesocial hashtag.
