The first was way back in 1923. Now, Bike Week is one of the UK’s biggest annual cycling promotion events.
This June (15-23) will see Bike Week 2013 taking place. As the nation falls in love with cycling, this year's Bike Week will offer inspiration and practical help, hoping to inspire new and lapsed cyclists alike.
Bike Week 2013 will focus on providing advice for every budget. There’ll be guidance on where to buy a bike locally for everyday use, or a low cost option via a great bicycle recycling scheme, plus advice on how to patch up an old bike. Dr Bike specialists will guide cyclists on how to mend and when to spend.
Recent research shows that at least four in ten Brits now cycle. With newly released government plans for improved infrastructure and training, Bike Week hopes to capitalise on these incentives to help get many more people back on two wheels this summer.
