It's now only a few weeks until the annual nationwide 'Bike Week.' Essentially this is a celebration of cycling, and an opportunity to promote and highlight the associated social, health and environmental benefits. It aims go get us all onto a bicycle for even just a short while during the week, and encourages people to consider incorporating cycling into their lives for general transport, commuting, shopping or just for fun - anything goes!
There will be fun events, rides, competitions and workshops happening all over the U.K so make sure you check out the Bike Week website and see what's happening near you.
I'll be heading back to Northern Ireland and working with Sustrans (the U.K's sustainable transport organisation) to give my "Cycling Reporter' lecture in a number of schools during the week. Keep an eye on my site for further updates on that and possibly a few other things.
So if you've been meaning to get that bicycle out for ages but haven't got round to it, or even if you're already a bike fanatic then there's plenty for you to get involved with during Bike Week - no excuses!
