This year Bike Week is all about you and your local community, Cycling UK want to encourage as many people as possible to get out there and journey by bike. Imagine how your community could look if everyone cycled, how much quieter it could be, how much cleaner it could be, how much happier people could be. There are things you can do to make this a reality. From Monday 6 June to Sunday 12 June, join us and celebrate all that is great about riding a bike. Taking part is easy and helps make a real difference to more people cycling.
Inspire someone you know
Why not encourage a colleague or someone you know to go riding with you, or use an exhilarating bike ride as a way to reach out to your community and
share the benefits of cycling with others. Whatever you do, the most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the thrill of the ride.
