Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’.

Bike Week first took place in 1923 – 95 years ago! It was, and always has been, a great opportunity to highlight the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, with a core aim of getting people to give cycling a go all over the UK.

This year it takes place from 9th-17th June, and Welsh Cycling have confirmed their opportunities suitable for all, to encourage people to get on their bike during the week!
