Take to the Streets for
11-19 June 2016
Bike Week is a special time each year to promote cycling and show us just how easy it is to make cycling part of our every day routine!
There are loads of ways to get involved with this year’s events. Across the country there will be thousands of cycling events that you can take part in. And, it really doesn’t matter whether you’re an old pro or new to cycling.
From fundraising to commuter challenges, there’s a great variety of activities to pick from. Or if you have your own ideas you can always organise your own event too!
It’s the biggest nationwide cycling event and over half a million people will join in and participate in events up and down the country. So it is hoped that Bike Week will be an even bigger success this year.
For all the latest news and information and details of how you can register for the event visit the Bike Week website for details.
Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends. The 2016 event will take place 11-19th June but events still take place through September and beyond!
This year’s Bike Week has a special focus and will encourage people to use their bikes to cycle to work. Many people will use the events to ride and take part in ‘buddy’ rides with colleagues, scope out the easiest route to their place of work or take part in work place challenges.
As the biggest nationwide cycling event in the UK, Bike Week encourages over half a million people to join in events, rethink their everyday journeys and switch to cycling as the most convenient way to get around. There are hundreds of events planned for 2016.
