National Bike Week 2018 takes place from 9th – 17th June 2018

National Bike Week was launched in 2009 to raise the profile of cycling as a healthy and fun mode of transport and physical activity. Bike Week 2018 will take place from Saturday 9th – Sunday 17th of June.

The types of groups which may apply are community groups, voluntary organisations, schools, sports clubs, active retirement groups, community childcare service providers, work places or any group that wishes to organise a bike related event on a ‘not for profit basis’ during Bike Week 2018.

  • Trail Cycle & Bike Skills events
