Go By Bike Day

A one-day event in your region that encourages people to switch from cars, buses and trains to biking to work for a day. At certain events, a free breakfast awaits cyclists at the end of their ride.

In 2015, Go By Bike Day took place on Wednesday 11 February 2015. Watch this space for details about Go By Bike Day in 2016!

Big Bike Tune Up

The Big Bike Tune Up (BBTU) is a safety initiative designed to encourage new and past bike-riders to get their unused bikes out of storage and along to a BBTU event.

Mechanics at the BBTU event will give the bike a quick maintenance check to make sure it is safe and road-worthy.
