HSBC UK Guided Rides
The HSBC UK Guided Ride
programme is a partnership between Leeds City Council and British Cycling which
provides a variety of local led rides as well as the HSBC UK City Ride Leeds event.
All rides are free and are led by qualified ride leaders who will support you
along your ride.
HSBC UK Guided rides come
in three levels: easygoing, steady and challenging to suit your cycling
Easygoing - Not cycled for a while
and looking for an easy way to get back in the saddle? Fancy a fun way to get
your friends or kids riding? Easygoing rides are great for all abilities and
ages, taking place along relaxed, mostly traffic-free routes.
Steady - If you’re
fairly confident on your bike and ready to broaden your cycling horizons,
Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest
hills, rides take place on mainly quiet roads with plenty of sights along the
Challenging - You don’t have to be the next Bradley Wiggins,
but you’ll need to be fairly fit to take part in Challenging rides. As well as
covering a good distance, there may well be a few hills along the way! If you
fancy a fresh challenge, these rides are perfect for you.
