Bike Week 2018 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 is celebrating its 95th birthday and takes place between 9-17 June. The week is all about getting out on your bike and discovering everyday cycling for everyone.
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.
Between 9-17 June, thousands will be joining cycling events and activities across the country. Join your local ride and shout about cycling with our #7daysofcycling.
What is 7 days of cycling?
#7daysofcycling is a great opportunity to head out and enjoy a cycle ride for seven days during the month of June to celebrate Bike Week 2018.
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.
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
