Gold medal winning cyclist and Lancaster University alumnus Jason Queally will be starting The Roses Ride taking place on Saturday, May 3.

Starting and finishing at the Lancaster University Campus, Roses Ride 2014 gives cyclists of all ages and abilities a range of mileage options from an easy 1.8 mile guided campus route, a gentle easy-going six mile route exploring the local cycle way, and a longer steady 17 mile ride.

All rides are on cycle way and marshalled road routes.

The bike ride is part of the 50th anniversary of The Roses sporting competition, between Lancaster and York University.

Lancaster University Student’s Union vice president Emily Pollitt said: “The Roses Ride is a great opportunity to participate in a weekend of sport with a former Olympic Champion and our champions of the future.

“Whether people have only just learnt how to ride a bike or have been doing it for years, start pedalling and ride to support Lancaster.”
