June is when nationally the country celebrates cycling with Bike Week 11 – 19 June. Here at Cycle Colchester we promote cycling all year around however June is when our busy season of attending summer events really begins

So this month there are plenty of opportunities to get your bike checked out, to take part in bike themed children’s activities and to ask lots of questions about cycling if you visit one of our cycling stalls at local events. Check the ‘upcoming events’ for dates

National Cycling charity CTC has changed its name to Cycling UK and is coordinating hundreds of activities across the UK in June to encourage people back onto a bike. Locally Cycling UK will have led rides for all ages and ability throughout June and July.

Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen are offering two beginners Bike Maintenance workshops in June. One focused on brakes and another on gears.

Colchester Rovers are running a time trial for beginners as part of Bike Week on the 22 June

We have just updated and revamped our Get On Your Bike leaflet with lots of new information.

The Bike Week theme this year is Cycle to Work, if you want to give it a try this year you could sign up to Love To Ride to log your rides plus there are prizes to be won. We will also be organising ADULT cycle confidence sessions.

If you need some flexible part time work and would enjoy teaching children to cycle safely, Safer Essex Roads Partnership are looking for people willing to train as Bikeability instructors.
