A programme of events with a common focus
Few things in life are better than a cycle ride, whether it’s to visit friends, a daily commute or a trip into the countryside.
The Big Bike Revival has been running for four years to inspire the 42% of people who own bikes, but who don’t cycle, to start riding.
With events across England and Scotland, people attending benefit from free cycle checks, servicing, cycle maintenance workshops, cycle training and accompanied rides.
In 2017, we reached more than 64,000 people who attended in excess of 1,900 free events across six weeks. We fixed more than 1,600 bikes, created around 37,000 new cycle trips.
And around 18,500 people started cycling more regularly after taking part in a Big Bike Revival event, meaning more journeys were made by bike and people felt safer cycling.
The Big Bike Revival not only increased the number of trips made by bike, but it improved the perception of safety by providing training and support.
