Closures and diversions for Sky Ride York
9:58am Friday 13th September 2013 in News
CITY-CENTRE roads will be closed and buses diverted this weekend for a cycling event in York.
The first Sky Ride York, a day of traffic-free cycling for families, will be held on Saturday, with two “social rides” to the city-centre setting off from Rawcliffe Park & Ride and York Sport Village at 9am and 9.30am respectively to allow people to join the main event.
Bus routes will be altered to avoid closed roads and timetables have been changed, with people advised to check itravelyork.info/events/sky-ride-york for details.
Castle car park will be open on Sunday but will have fewer spaces because part of it is needed for one of the Sky Ride’s “activation zones”.
Esplanade car park will also be open but Rowntree car park will be closed on Saturday and also on Sunday due to the Festival of Cycling. There will be no access to parking inside the Sky Ride route.
