Cy­clists en­joy free break­fast to mark bike week 2010

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

CY­CLISTS in Hunt­ing­don and Yax­ley en­joyed a free break­fast as part of na­tional Bike Week.

The week, which runs from June 19 to 27, aims to make ‘ev­ery­day cy­cling for ev­ery­one’ and in­spire peo­ple to try cy­cling for fun and as a means of get­ting around to the shops, to school, the li­brary or to visit friends.

Those who cy­cled to work on June 18 were in­vited to take their bike to Hunt­ing­don farm­ers’ mar­ket in the Mar­ket Square, for a free break­fast roll with a cup of fair-trade tea or cof­fee.

And peo­ple who cy­cled to work in Yax­ley picked up their com­ple­men­tary hot drink and crois­sant from the In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre at the Broad­way Shop­ping Cen­tre.

Councillor Jonathan Gray, whose ex­ec­u­tive re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in­clude en­vi­ron­ment, and who has cy­cled as part of his daily com­mute for more than 10 years, said: “Cy­cling not only ben­e­fits the en­vi­ron­ment but is a health­ier mode of trans­port for those daily jour­neys, can be quicker than the car and is fun.”
