Bike Week launches with new mission

00.00 | 30 November 2011 |

Bike Week 2009 (13-21 June) has launched with a new mission – to challenge families to swap their four wheels for two and discover new places in their local community.

Inspired by the theme, ‘Get more out of life: live local, get cycling’, Bike Week’s revamped website features a user-friendly event search facility to help people find specific events in their area.

Phillip Darnton, chairman of Cycling England, said: "Many families are looking for easy ways to get more out of life, particularly during these difficult financial times. Cycling brings families together and is a free way to discover new places and rides and have a lot of fun."

The new website includes an event organiser’s guide, ‘useful contacts’ section and hints & tips pages to help organisers create and promote events from small community rides to large festivals.
