Launch Event Partners

Bike Week is launched each year with a host of MPs, companies and supporters of cycling at the Dutch Embassy in London, celebrating the vital contribution cycling makes to our communities, environment and public health in the UK.

Part of the celebration includes a social cycle ride from Kensington to Westminster, marking the annual All Party Parliamentary Bike Ride. The 2018 event was hosted by TV presenter and cyclist Jeremy Vine.

The 2019 launch event will bring together politicians, practitioners, peers from the trade, health and transport agencies to share, enthuse and get behind the movement that could be the solution to healthier happier communities.

As the UK’s annual awareness-raising week for all things cycling, Bike Week partners – including Cycling UK, Dutch Embassy, Bicycle Association and APPCG – are calling influencers, innovators and industry experts to come together and explore ways to create modal shift, so more people cycle in the UK.
