BSF Teams Up With 'Are You Game?' To Offer 100 Free Places For Break The Cycle 2017

Bristol Sport Foundation has teamed up with Bristol City of Sport’s ‘Are You Game?’ campaign to offer 100 free places for the Bronze route of next month’s Break the Cycle charity ride.

The Bronze route covers 35 miles and is the shortest of the three routes on offer to cyclists, following the Bristol to Bath Railway Path before heading back into Bristol.

The ‘Are You Game’ campaign was launched on May 6th and aims to give people of all ages the chance to try a range of free taster sessions for various sports and activities at venues around the city, thanks to local clubs and organisations. The campaign has been organised as part of Bristol’s year as a European City of Sport.

Break the Cycle is made up of three different routes of varying distances – Bronze (35 miles), Silver (65 miles) and Gold (100 miles).

Guy Fishbourne, Bristol City Council’s Sport & Physical Activity Development Manager, said: “I’m really happy with the reaction we’ve had from local clubs and organisations so far to this campaign and would like to congratulate everyone who has already got involved.

“A key part of our aim as European City of Sport is to make activity and sport more accessible to the people of Bristol. We hope through campaigns like this that we will be able to encourage more people than ever before to take up a sport or activity as part of their daily routine.

“We have a great range of free sports and activity taster sessions listed online and I encourage everyone to take look and see if there is something for them.

“Regular exercise can have such a positive effect on both our physical and mental health and this could be the perfect excuse to find the right kind of activity for you.”

Ben Breeze, Bristol Sport Foundation chief community officer, said: Bristol Sport Foundation are delighted to support Bristol as a European City Of Sport by allocating 100 promotional places on our Bronze 35mile route to the ‘Are You Game?’ campaign and very much look forward to joining you in the saddle on Sunday, June 18th.”
