Bike Week 2021 30 May - 5 June

Bike Week, delivered by Cycling UK, is an annual celebration to showcase cycling and how brilliant it is. Join thousands of people all across the UK and enjoy the simple pleasure of riding a bike. Let's make the world better by bike.

Bike Week is running from 30 May to 5 June 2021

The theme of Bike Week 2021 is health and wellbeing.

Cycling remains a great way to keep fit and active and is a good way to boost immunity, it's also fantastic for your well-being. This year we'll be launching with the World’s Biggest Bike Ride. You can also take part in our virtual #7daysofcycling challenge, giving you an amazing way to reunite with your friends and family in the outdoors. Be inspired by some exciting challenges and routes. 

The most important thing is to take part, record your ride and have fun.

  • If you cycle regularly in adulthood, you will enjoy a level of fitness equivalent to someone 10 years younger.
  • If all cycle journeys increased from the current level of 2% to 25% by 2050, the collective benefit would be £248bn.
