What better time to take up cycling, dust off your old two wheel peddly and start riding to work/park/shops than Bike Week. This cycle lovers delight is the UK's biggest mass participation cycling event.

Bike Week encourages us to get fit, explore our local community and rediscover an alternative mode of transport - one many of us left in our childhoods.

The 13-21 June is the official Bike Week in which loads of bike related events are happening around the country. From free cycle safety checks, cycle fairs, off road adventures, races, time trials, commuter challenges and bike breakfasts you all have the opportunity to get involved in this very eco friendly mode of transport.

Fancy organising your own bike related event? Register it on the Bike Week website to get a whole lot of people along. The person who organises the most events during Bike Week will win a new Raleigh bike and helmet.

Happy cycling folks.
