RCC Attending Summer Events
Join RCC in Celebrating Cycling in Bike Week
Bike Week, 8th-16th June, sponsored nationally by Cycling UK, is an annual celebration to showcase cycling and inspire people all over the UK to give it a try.
Bike Week events are suitable for people of all ages and levels of experience. There will be lots of different opportunities, such as family-friendly rides, bike maintenance and group rides, to name but a few.
In 2019, Bike Week is set to add another 240,000 people to the 2.4 million who already cycle three times or more a week.
As a Cycling UK affiliated group Reading Cycle Campaign wants to help as many people as possible make riding a bike part of everyday life through campaigning for the routes, facilities and rights to make Cycling easier for all!
We’re pleased to be taking part in a number of events throughout June to help people across Reading find out more about what’s on offer, including a range of cycle rides/free cycle lessons /getting bikes fixed and second hand bike sale.
Come along and see RCC at:
- Reading Cycle Festival: Sunday 9th June
- Waterfest: Saturday 15th June
- East Reading Festival: Sunday 23rd June
Sunday 9th June is the Reading Cycle Festival (avanticycling.co.uk/festival) held on Christchurch Meadows. This event will be a fun day out for all the family, designed to help more people get onto bicycles and enjoy the fantastic trails and footpaths in and around Reading.
There will be free bike checks and basic maintenance fixes from Reading Bicycle Kitchen; so get your bike out of the shed to make it summer-ready!
Second hand bikes will be for sale at the Bike Recycle – so bring along your unwanted bikes for donating to a new home!
Local Cycle shops will have demo bikes for you to try out, including e-Bikes and folders; local clubs will be on hand so come and find out how you can get involved in social group rides; and running throughout the day family-friendly and beginner rides so come and join the fun!
You will have the chance to take part in various other activities on the day and will also have the opportunity to get information and advice on how to enjoy the world of cycling. Keep an eye on the Festival website below or Facebook page for more details.
