CYCLESOLIHULL are encouraging people to get on their bikes for National Bike Week 2009.
The volunteer group is one of several businesses, charities and organisations taking part in Solihull Council’s Environment Day on Saturday (June 13).
Bike enthusiasts will be using the event to pedal the cycling programme, which is happening nationwide this summer.
They will also highlight the advantages of getting out of the car and climbing into the saddle.
Councillor Kate Wild, cabinet member for community services, said: “Cycling is a great way for people to keep fit, have fun and has a range of environmental benefits too. There are lots of local incentives and groups that people can join to help keep active and this year’s Environment Day will provide people with the chance to find out more about them.”
Events taking place during Bike Week (June 13-21) will include cycle rides between 5-18 miles long.
