LIVERPOOL people are being urged to get on their bikes next week in the biggest promotion of cycling the city has ever seen.

The City Council is hosting a ‘Get Cycling Week’, from June 2 -8 when there will be a series of events in schools, workplaces and the city centre to encourage people to get involved in cycling.

The York-based Company of Cyclists, who have bought smaller events to the city, will bring three road shows involving 90 cycles – some conventional and some very unusual: – from tandems to tricycles and commuter bikes – which the public can ride. 

The week, which has been partly funded by Wirral and Knowsley Councils, Merseytravel and local businesses will also see roadshows visit 12 schools in the area and after school hours the local community will be invited to come along and take part in the various demonstrations.

Councillor Peter Millea, Executive Member for Regeneration, said:- “When we had previous Cycle Shows we had very favourable feedback from teachers and pupils and we want to build on that success. We want to encourage youngsters to start cycling and to carry on with it throughout their lives.
“I would hope as many people as possible visit the roadshows when they are in the schools in their areas and I would encourage them to get cycling.

Liverpool City Council’s cycling officer, Cathy McNulty, who is responsible for arranging this cycling extravaganza, said:- “Company of Cyclists can help put cycling on the agenda with Get Cycling Week. We hope that current and would-be cyclists will come along, try out some of the amazing bikes on offer, pick up some free guides and factsheets, and be encouraged to enjoy a healthier body and mind.” 

There will also be demonstrations in Williamson Square and the week culminates on Sunday 8 June with a Bike Time Ride from the Pier Head to Sefton Park.
