What is Bike Week?
Bike Week 2020, organised by Cycling UK, is the annual celebration of everything that’s wonderful about cycling. It’s a time to remind ourselves of all the positives that riding a bike can bring, including our own health and well-being, the theme of this year’s event.
Of course, things are a little different this year in the light of the global pandemic and the restrictions on movement. There won’t be any group rides this year, but as we’re seeing many more people out on their bikes, from families making use of their daily exercise allowance to key workers avoiding public transport, it’s a great time to capitalise on that renewed interest.
Bike Week is an opportunity to remind people that cycling can fix many of society’s biggest problems, including air pollution, obesity, poor mental health and ill health from inactivity. We want to make sure people don’t return to their cars when the crisis is over. So let’s get the nation cycling!
Get involved, set yourself a challenge, go out and enjoy cycling! Tell your friends, colleagues and family about Bike Week too.
