Bike Week is an annual campaign to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. The theme for 2016 is 'Cycling to Work'.

The week aims to get people all over the UK to give cycling a go, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends. 

Tuesday 14 June: 4.30pm - Downderry/Seaton ride (meet outside Nancy Astor Building)

BUG bike ride from Plymouth University to Downderry/Seaton via Torpoint and Crafthole returning via the Cremyll Ferry. This will be a longer ride and includes some steep hills, so is not for novices. Contact Meriel FitzPatrick for details (mefitzpatrick@plymouth.ac.uk).

Thursday 16 June: 9.30am-11.30am - Dr Bike maintenance workshop session, SU Roof

Do you have a bike in need of some TLC? We are offering a Dr Bike workshop with bike maintenance by qualified British Cycling Ride Leaders. We check everything on your bike from wheels, brakes, gears and tyre pressure to lights, racks, pedals, saddles and more. By the end, your bike will feel loved and cared for.

Any minor adjustments we can make to the bike we do there and then. Anything we can't fix on site we will let you know exactly what needs doing and a rough guide to what it should cost at a bike shop.

Checks will take up to 20 minutes. Contact joseph.brearley@su.plymouth.ac.uk to book your slot.
