Bike Week 2020
We realise in these uncertain times, helping people to come together to ride may not be possible, so we’re holding a series of fun Bike Week events online this June.
Cycling remains a great way to keep fit and active and is a good way to boost immunity, it’s also great for your mental well-being. You can be a cycling hero by taking on our #7daysofcycling challenge this Bike Week, there is a chance for you to win prizes.
- Cycling to work can mean you have a 45% lower risk of developing cancer, and a 46% lower risk of cardiovascular disease
- If you cycle regularly in adulthood, you will enjoy a level of fitness equivalent to someone 10 years younger
- If all cycle journeys increased from the current level of 2% to 25% by 2050, the collective benefit would be £248bn
From speedy racing bikes or monstrous mountain climbers, to a small pink bike with tassels hanging from the handle grips and a little white wicker basket with a bell attached to the front, bikes come in a style for every person and every path. For 95 years now it has been the mission of Bike Week to show people that not only is there a bicycle for everyone, but that cycling is for everyone, too!
To the shops or to the mountains, to work or to a wedding, there are endless reasons to hop on a bike and Bike Week is a fantastic way for novices and seasoned riders, free spirits and families alike to give the health and environmental benefits of cycling a spin together.
With hundreds of events organised across the UK (and over half a million people pedalling along with you), Bike Week is the UK’s largest biking event of the year, helping it in it’s goal of inspiring new and old riders to get on the saddle and give the pedals a whirl.
Bike week invites you to grab your helmet, gather up your friends and family, and (re)discover how much enjoyment and enrichment cycling can bring!
