8-16th June 2019 – Bike Week

Bike Week is the UK’s annual awareness-raising week to showcase everything that’s great about cycling!

Bike Week aims to get many more people across the UK to give cycling a try. So we are encouraging people like you to get out on your bike between Saturday 8 to Sunday 16 June 2019.

Why not experience ‘everyday’ cycling – whether that’s riding your bike to work, school, to the shops or for leisure – and see how easily it can be a part of your daily life. Hundreds of great events will be taking place suitable for people of all ages and levels of experience to help you enjoy cycling, such as family-friendly rides, bike maintenance workshops, bike breakfasts and group rides.

Visit the website to see what’s happening near you.

You could even organise an event for friends, colleagues or your local pub or club. Simply register with Bike Week to benefit from:
• Event listing promoted across the UK
• Free public liability insurance
• Promotional materials and tips to make the most of your event.

Want to get involved with Bike Week at your workplace? Find out more at the Bike Week website, or download an events pack.

20th June – Clean Air Day 2019

We can all have a cleaner air day on 20th June. Air pollution affects you from your first breath to your last, as the damage to our health can start when we’re a baby and carry on through into old age. But if we work together we could have a cleaner air day on:

Clean Air Day
20th June 2019

Did you know that if you walk on the side streets, rather than busy roads, you could experience 20% less air pollution? Or that if you walk, rather than drive, you could cut your exposure to air pollution in half (as car drivers can be exposed to twice as much air pollution as pedestrians and nine times more than a cyclist)?

Clean Air Day on 20th June is a chance to find out more about air pollution, learn how to avoid it, and discover the practical things that people can do to cut local pollution.

Want to run a Clean Air Day event this year? Find resources here, and find out more about Clean Air day online here.
