Bike Week Challenges

Test yourself this Bike Week and take on some of our challenges. We want to encourage you to push yourself and try something new, or maybe just use it as inspiration to remind you or others about the different ways cycling can be fun. Maybe take on 7 different activities over the 7 days, and make it your own #7daysofcycling challenge?

Filter the challenges by type to find out how you can get involved with Bike Week, and of course feel free to make up your own too. Share your progress and join the conversation on social media using #BikeWeekUK and #7DaysofCycling.
