The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Message Board -

RES­I­DENTS are be­ing urged to get on their bikes to take ad­van­tage of a num­ber of spe­cial of­fers.

As part of Na­tional Bike Week, from Satur­day, June 19 to Sun­day, June 27, Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil’s Trav­el­choice team is run­ning events for cy­clists of all ages.

On Sun­day, June 20, fam­i­lies are en­cour­aged to ‘Gear up for the Green Wheel’.

Start­ing at 10.30am, the event is open to ev­ery­one, with par­tic­i­pants given the op­tion of cy­cling any­thing from a few leisurely miles to a tougher 45 mile trip.

Peo­ple cy­cling to the Lido, in Bishop’s Road, be­tween Mon­day, June 2, and Sun­day, June 27, who can prove they ar­rived on bike, will be en­ti­tled to free en­try.

Free break­fasts are also avail­able to cy­clists who stop at the Cor­nish Pasty Com­pany, in Bridge Street, on Wed­nes­day, June 23, be­tween 7.45am and 9am.

Councillor Sa­man­tha Dal­ton, the city coun­cil’s cabi­net mem­ber for en­vi­ron­ment cap­i­tal, said: “Us­ing cy­cles rather than cars is a great way to travel around Peter­bor­ough and is a key way of eas­ily re­duc­ing in­di­vid­ual car­bon foot­prints.”
