Bike Week has begun and it handily coincides with the sun returning an exciting time of year for Cyclists.
The UK’s annual celebration of cycling starts on the 30th May and lasts until the 5th June, with various events happening on each day. Cycling UK is delivering a week of fun and exciting activities for the whole family.
This year’s theme will be ‘health and wellbeing’, with a focus on getting as many people as possible to share how cycling has helped them: physically, mentally, and emotionally.
You don’t have to ride every day, even just one is fine. Use the hashtag ‘#7daysofcycling’ to share how you’re participating and to be in with the chance of winning one of Cycling UK’s many prizes, including £100 Rapha vouchers, a child’s bike from Halfords and much more.
Follow the hashtag to keep up to date with the great things people are getting involved with across the UK, and to see more ideas of how to get involved yourself!
Listed below are some of the biggest events happening each day:
