Bike Week (16-24 June 2012) is an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to the local shops, school, the library or just to visit friends.

As the biggest nationwide cycling event in the UK, Bike Week encourage over half a million people to join in events, rethink their everyday journeys and switch to cycling as the most convenient way to get around.

  • The more people that cycle or scoot to school, the faster your school completes each stage
  • The Big Pedal winner is the school that completes the whole race in the quickest overall time
