Team Green Britain Bike Week (18-26 June), the UK’s biggest mass participation cycling event, is this year hosting ‘Britain’s Biggest Bike Fix’ – an ambitious attempt to fix as many bikes as possible in a week.

This year’s Team Green Britain Bike Week was only made possible by generous funding from the cycling industry and the corporate sector: The industry doubled its financial contribution via the Bike Hub and EDF Energy, Britain’s largest producer of low carbon electricity, has confirmed a second year of sponsorship.

Phillip Darnton, of the Bicycle Association, says: “Britain’s Biggest Bike Fix aims to help everyone – from families and people who have never cycled before – as well as those who need an incentive to cycle to work and, of course, seasoned cyclists.

“Hopping on a bike not only helps you get fit, it can be really convenient and help you save money too – all powerful reasons to get involved. That’s why the cycle industry has supported Bike Week since 2004, and with some other sources of funding this year being reduced or withdrawn, the cycle industry, through Bike Hub, has more than doubled its contribution to this important annual national event.”

Team Green Britain Bike Week’s aim is to get more people cycling, more often. To find out more about Britain’s Biggest Bike Fix, visit www.bikeweek.org.uk.
