Locations for the 2014 events are expected to be announced.

Promotional films for the events will feature athlete endorsements from current Great Britain Cycling Team riders.

Carbon MD Paul McHugh, a keen cyclist and former British Sprint Champion, commented: ‘We are thrilled to be working with British Cycling on their Sky Ride promotional campaign. An excellent initiative, with an already impressive following, we very much look forward to lending our creative skills to the project.’
