Bike Week 2019 is the UK’s annual awareness raising event that promotes everything that’s great about cycling. Delivered by Cycling UK, in partnership in Scotland with Cycling Scotland, it encourages over half a million people to join in events, rethink their everyday journeys and switch to cycling as the most convenient way to get around. This year, #BikeWeekUK takes place between 8-16 June. The week is all about getting out on your bike and discovering everyday cycling for everyone.
If you’re a regular cyclist, encourage others to join in, either through sharing photos as part of our 7 days of cycling or getting people out on their bike or on an organised ride. Cycling has huge benefits to society, as well as individuals – it’s good for physical health, mental health, the environment and much more. Whether you swap the car for the bike for just small journeys or go on a longer ride – every ride counts.
What is 7 days of cycling?
7 days of cycling is a great opportunity to get out and enjoy a cycle ride for seven times during the month of June to celebrate Bike Week 2019. There are no rules on what counts as one of your seven – from riding to work, to popping to the shops to a pootle in the park with friends.
All you need to do is share your photos and videos of your rides on Instagram or Twitter using #7daysofcycling. Each day we’ll be looking at the different ways to experience cycling. Make sure to share with us online your own suggestions too! #7daysofcycling #BikeWeekUK
