Get saddled up for Bike Week
It’s time to saddle up and get set for Bike Week 2017!
Taking place from 10-18 June, Bike Week’s theme this year is ‘fun & freedom’ – and with hundreds of events taking place all over the country this is the encouragement many of us need to kickstart our summer of cycling. Visit the Bike Week website to find your local events – or why not put on one yourself for your friends, family or colleagues?
With Halfords offering free bike checks throughout Bike Week too, there’s no excuse to miss this cycling party.

In case you're struggling finding them, we've created a (Google) map, showing the location of all the start points for the Ribble Valley Grimpeur 2017 climb segments.
There are 10 climbs situated (relatively) locally, 5 in Cumbria and another 5 in Yorkshire.
For more infrormation about this year's competition, have a look at the Grimpeur of the Year 2017 page.
The club currently has two organised rides that take place on Wednesday evenings between April and September to make the most of the Summer daylight hours. There is a group that meets at the UCLAN Sports Arena, which is at a steady pace and would be suitable for beginners. There is also a faster paced ride from our social meeting location in Bamber Bridge.
More details of each can be seen on the Wednesday Evening Rides 2017 page.
