CYCLING enthusiasts headed to Rowntree Park for a weekend celebrating pedal power.
The latest Festival Of Cycling saw hundreds of visitors take advantage of fine summer weather to take in the various stalls, expert cycling advice and displays from cycling and BMX stunt riders.
Coun Dave Merrett , said: “The widened Festival Of Cycling is a fun way to learn more about sustainable travel, with lots of fun activities for everyone to get involved in.
“We hope people will go away feeling inspired to try out different modes of transport to help make York a cleaner, more sustainable city.”
The event is now part of iTravel York, an initiative funded from central governments’ Local Sustainable Transport Fund to “encourage non-congesting modes of travel, to improve air quality and to help boost the local economy.”
