It's not often you get a chance to ride your bike alongside a Commonwealth Games cycling team member carrying the torch as part of the Queen's Baton Relay. This is your chance to do so in the safe environment of Cuningar Loop.
You are invited to come and join us completing a lap of the park in the company of a past Commonwealth Games cycling team member for the Queen's Baton Relay. The baton will then be taken, via the Cuningar bridge, to the Emirates Arena by the cycling team.
