Bike week 2016 kicks off this Saturday. 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.
This year’s Bike Week has a special focus and will encourage people to use their bikes to cycle to work. Incorporating cycling into your daily commute has many benefits. Could it be time for you to get back on 2 wheels?
Here in Southampton, the Southampton Sky Ride is a great opportunity to start off Bike Week. It’s happening at 11am on Sunday 12th June and if you’ve never tried it before, it’s a brilliant event for the whole family, whatever your cycling ability. In fact Sky Ride runs social and guided rides locally throughout the year. Again, whatever your level of cycling, you can find something that will inspire and guide you on your cycling journey.
