Road safety teams across the country are co-ordinating a variety of events as part of Bike Week 2021.
Bike Week, delivered by Cycling UK, is an annual celebration to showcase the benefits of cycling.
The theme of Bike Week 2021 (30 May – 5 June) is health and wellbeing.
Sarah Mitchell, chief executive of Cycling UK, said: “Over the past year we have really seen the importance of staying active and getting outside on our wellbeing, both physical and mental. That’s the message we are focusing on with this year’s Bike Week.”
Activities are taking place across the country, including in London where a number of road safety teams have organised a series of free events. These range from training sessions for children and adults, to led bike rides and bike maintenance clinics.
Cycling UK has also organised a full programme of virtual events.
Matt Stephens, cycling commentator and former racer, said: “It doesn’t matter who you are, how old you are or how fit you are, riding a bike is a great way to get active, get outdoors and feel amazing.”
