Tesco and Everyday Cycling have joined forces to organise Tesco Bike active, a new programme of fun family cycling events held in Kent, Manchester, Leeds, Nottinghamshire and Bath.
The events are focussed on family biking and take place on traffic-free routes allowing you to relax and enjoy the pedalling. They're going to be lap based events, so you can go at your own pace and do as many laps as you want.
