Get on your bikes and cycle is the message from the Council. A series of cycling events are to take place during Bike Week from 15 to 23 June to get more people cycling throughout the borough.
Bike week is a national event supported by the government and co-ordinated by a number of cycling organisations including Sustrans, the Cyclist Touring Club and Cycle campaigns network.
