For the benefit of participants from elsewhere, the routes have run close to local notable buildings such as York Minster, Leicester's KingPower Stadium and Coventry Cathedral. Apart from the shear numbers of cyclists, usually upwards of 10,000, a striking feature has been the wide age range, with three year old children riding along with their parents, and some even younger children in bike trailers. This bodes well for the future of cycling.
Here are some photographs of the rides.
Bike trailers are not just for kids.
