It’s National Bike Week!

Bike Week, taking place from 14 – 22 June, is the biggest nationwide cycling event in the UK, and is aimed at getting Britons back on their bicycles.

There are nearly 900 different events scheduled, so take advantage of the summer weather and get involved!


Notable Events

  • The London Cycle Challenge is a fun summer cycling competition where users sign up on the website and log their trips, with some great prizes up for grabs. There are three different stages to the competition: the Virtual Ride Challenge, the Workplace Cycle Challenge and the Goal Setting Challenge.
  • The Edinburgh Festival of Cycling is now in its second year, and showcases all aspects of bike culture – from tours to spinning classes, as well as lectures, competitions and family activities.
  • If you’re in Aberdeenshire, then join in on the Huntly Bike Week festivities. There will be skills coaching, personal training sessions, and a variety of cycle rides.
  • The Oxford Bike Week has a number of different cycling trips scheduled this week, along with some informative workshops.
  • Bristol’s Biggest Bike Ride, taking place on Sunday 22 June, is one of the UK’s biggest free non-competitive cycling events. Cyclists have a choice of 4 routes, ranging from 9 to 38 miles, so there’s a distance to suit everyone!
