On 21 September, around 40 cyclists attended the first of British Cycling's Bike Breakfasts in Preston's Winkley Square Gardens.
Organised in partnership with the START campaign, a national initiative to promote and celebrate sustainable living, the event treated cycle commuters to a free breakfast, accompanied by a smorgasbord of help and advice.
As riders helped themselves to some free breakfast bars, Local Police Community Support Officers were there to security stamp bikes. And while riders tucked into croissants and coffee, local independent bike shop Sutcliffe's Bikes sorted out the repairs. Lancashire County Council too were on hand to offer advice on cycle routes in and around the town while Preston City Council provided help and advice on other local health initiatives.
So like any good brekkie, British Cycling's bike breakfast left Preston's bike commuters awake, fuelled-up and raring to go. So if you're biking to work in Blackburn on 30 September, check out our next bike breakfast event at 8am in front of the town hall on King William Street.
