CYCLEMANIA is set to hit the streets of Southampton again this weekend.

The annual Sky Ride event takes place on Sunday.

Last year’s event saw 10,000 cyclists – aged from six to people in their 70s – get on their bikes and cycle on a traffic-free route around the city centre.

Organisers hope 2014 will see even more cyclists of all ages and levels of experience will take part in this year's event, the fifth to be held in the city.

The 7.8-kilometre (almost five-mile) route will start and finish at the Guildhall and take in some of the city’s most familiar sights including the iconic Bargate and Mayflower Park.
