Big push on pedal power in bike week

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Tonight’s TV -

IT’S all about pedal power this week, with Peter­bor­ough res­i­dents tak­ing to the roads to mark Na­tional Bike Week.

Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil’s Trav­el­choice team is run­ning events for cy­clists of all ages and in­ter­ests from to­mor­row un­til June 27.

On Sun­day, 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 chal­lenge of 45 miles.

There will be plenty of re­fresh­ment stops en route, and as it’s Fa­ther’s Day, all dads tak­ing part will re­ceive a spe­cial gift.

Peo­ple cy­cling to the Lido be­tween Mon­day and Sun­day, June 27, who can prove they ar­rived on a bike, will be en­ti­tled to free en­try.

Free break­fasts, in­clud­ing pasties or ba­con rolls and a cof­fee, are avail­able to cy­clists who stop at the Cor­nish Pasty Com­pany, on Bridge Street, on Wed­nes­day, be­tween 7.45am and 9am.

Ni­cola Francis, the city coun­cil’s Trav­el­choice team man­ager, said: “While the weather is warm, it’s an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to get on their bikes and en­joy the Great Out­doors. The Bike Week events are a chance for res­i­dents to have fun and see the city from a dif­fer­ent view.”
