Tomorrow sees the start of Bike Week, organised by Cycling UK. Bike Week is actually more than 10 days of nationwide activities designed to get people pedalling. From Dr Bike maintenance to buddy and social rides there's something for everyone to enjoy.
Bike Week was launched on Wednesday with a parliamentary bike ride from the Danish Embassy to Westminster. Ruth Cadbury MP, Co-Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group, said: “On behalf of the APPCG, we are delighted to support this year’s biggest celebration of cycling to work. Many trips are often quicker and easier by bike, especially in our towns and cities, and the health benefits are free!”
There are competitions and great prizes for those joining in by cycling to work or encouraging others to start cycling. Over half a million people are set to take part in the various activities on offer. Check out Bike Week for events near you.
