Bike Week 09 targets families

New website and advice for event organisers

This year's event takes place from 13-21 June

This year’s UK Bike Week takes place from 13-21 June, with a new website and a mission to get families out on their bikes.


Phillip Darnton, chairman of Cycling England, said: “We hope that by joining a Bike Week event, people will be inspired to hop on their bikes and discover the benefits and pleasures of cycling. Last year was a great success and I’m certain this year will be even better.”

Bike Week’s new website enables riders to search for events in their local area and choose from categories including time trials, commuter challenges and cycle skills training. 

The website also includes advice, promotional materials and liability insurance for those planning to host their own events.


To register an event, visit Organisers will be entered into a prize draw to win one of four Thule bike carriers.
