Dust down your bike for a gentle scenic Sky Ride in the Isle this Sunday.

The cost-free ride for any age from eight upwards (eight to 15 year olds must be with an adult) sets off from Belton at 10am and will last two hours 15 minutes.

The steady nine-mile ride will be at a comfortable pace on quiet roads with lovely rural views.

The route mostly follows a disused railway line with one or two embankments that may require cyclists to dismount. There is a chance to stop for refeshments in Epworth, continuing along more scenic lanes to Haxey before returning back through Epworth to the ride start.

It is recommended participants have spare inner tubes in case of punctures. Ride Leaders are there to help but are not responsible for your bike.
