From Cycling UK:                    Cycling Campaigns/Activities

 A Summer of Cycling 2017

The following Campaigns/Programmes have been backed by Cycling UK to encourage more people to take up cycling or celebrate those who already cycle. Please disseminate far and wide to help us target a wider audience. 

The Big Bike Revival – 6th May-18th June 2017.  Throughout May and June, Cycling UK are working with several Bike Recycling Centres, Social Enterprises and Community Groups to deliver a variety of FREE cycling activities, such as Bike Servicing, Repair, Maintenance Training, Learn to Ride Sessions, Led Rides and more.  The aim is to encourage people to dig their bikes out of the shed and get them ready for a summer of cycling, whether it be for leisure, sport or commuting purposes.  There’s loads of events to choose from across Merseyside and surrounding areas.  Details can be found via the following link:

Bike Week – 10th-18th June 2017. Bike Week
is an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends. The 2017 event will take place 10-18th June.  It would be great to encourage families, schools, colleges and businesses to participate in Bike Week.  Organisations can register Local/National cycling events on the Bike Week Website, whilst the general public can search for activities taking place nearby:

Women’s Festival of Cycling – July 2017.  Throughout July 2017, Cycling UK will be celebrating women who cycle and helping those who need extra encouragement to take up cycling. Whether ladies cycle five miles or 500, on or off-road, we’d love them to be part of the Women's Festival of Cycling by registering a ride and, where possible, encouraging others to join them.  There are all sorts for gifts available to the first 50 groups that register. More information can be found at the following link:

The Women’s Festival ties in nicely with the Liverpool Girls Can initiative, therefore please encourage Liverpool based groups to register their activities at the following website for more coverage:

I am sure that you can google some aspects in your area as I have lifted these from a Merseyside / Liverpool Promotion.

Happy and Safe Cycling!

John
