BikeBreakfast_Poster_Small_Jun16As part of Bike Week 2016 we will be holding two bike breakfasts – the first will be at the Balmoral Street bridge in Scotstoun on Thu 2 Jun and the second will be at the corner of Balshagray Crescent and Dumbarton Road on Thu 9 Jun.

The breakfasts will run from 7.30am to 9.30am and we will be offering cyclists and other users of the cycle path free hot drinks and pastries, information on cycling and walking and a FREE Dr Bike check!

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’.

Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, Bike 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 work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends. The 2016 event will take place 11-19th June but events still take place through September and beyond!

This year’s Bike Week has a special focus and will encourage people to use their bikes to cycle to work. Many people will use the events to ride and take part in ‘buddy’ rides with colleagues, scope out the easiest route to their place of work or take part in work place challenges.
