Free: Bike Week Seminars Glasgow 26th Feb & Edinburgh 28th Feb

BW logoBike Week ( 14th – 22nd June 2014) 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, the 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 the local shops, school, the library or just to visit friends.

– free liability insurance

– access to free posters, leaflets and giveaways
