Cyclists enjoy free breakfast to mark bike week 2010
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.”
