Oxford Bike Week planned for June

By John Charlton

Oxford Bike Week 2017 will take place from June 10-18 as part of Bike Week (UK), the 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 is for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends. There will be lots of fun cycling events all over Oxford.

As the biggest nationwide cycling event in the UK, Bike Week encourages 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.
