REYTA Finalist Just Beverley shortlisted nominee o2 community publication award 2017
Bike Fest

Week-long Bike Fest begins on Sunday

A week-long festival of cycling will be held across the East Riding in June to encourage people of all ages to get on their bikes.

The annual Cycle4Life Challenge Week, now in its fifth year, will involve six days of bike-themed events with fun challenges and activities on two wheels for families, schoolchildren and school staff.

The week launches with a Bike Fest in Beverley on Sunday 16 June featuring displays by stunt riders and a chance for youngsters and adults to ride go-karts and weird and wonderful bicycles.

Pupils from across the East Riding will take part in two school cycle challenges and teachers will saddle up for a 100km (60-mile) ride across the Yorkshire Wolds.

Meanwhile refugees living in the area who have been learning cycling skills as part of a road safety scheme, will be taking part in a bike ride around Beverley.

The Cycle4Life Challenge Week is organised by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s road safety and public health teams to promote cycling as a fun and healthy activity for all the family – and a great way to get around the East Riding.

Paul Bellotti, director of communities and environment at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Our Cycle4Life Challenge Week is now in its fifth year and we’re really pleased to put on another fantastic week of events giving children and adults the chance to take part in some fun, healthy cycling activities.

“We hope the events will inspire and encourage families to get out on their bikes. It’s a great way of improving fitness and getting around the East Riding to see some of the amazing places and beautiful countryside we have in our area.”
