Your health, your climate, your pocket and your community are all better by bike. You can take part in Bike Week from 6-12 June 2022.
This year Bike Week is all about you and your local community, to encourage as many people as possible to get out there and enjoy their community by bike.
Dream big and imagine how your community could be improved if everyone in it used their bikes more, together we can make a better world by bike.
These last few years have seen a lot of change, many people took up cycling or rediscovered it, dusting off that old bike sitting in the shed to get out there again. Some for exercise, some for commuting to work, to go to the shops or even just to be able to see friends and family. The bike can give everyone freedom, freedom to choose how to travel and how to live their lives better and healthier.
