Get cycling for summer with Bike Week 2015

With Bike Week 2015 just around the corner, Camden Council is reminding residents about the exciting series of events on offer this year. Running from Saturday 13 to Sunday 21 June 2015, Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. The first event is Camden is on 15 June with a further seven events in the borough during the week.

Councillor Phil Jones, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Transport & Planning
“The focus of this year’s events are to encourage more residents to use their bikes to cycle more regularly for leisure and commuting trips.

“Camden already has some great safe and attractive cycle routes and by the end of 2015, we will have doubled the amount of segregated cycle lanes in two years. By the end of 2016 we are on track to have over 10km of new and improved segregated cycle lanes in the borough linking many of our town centres to each other and to the West End and City.
 
“Making cycling safe and attractive will encourage more people to cycle helping to reduce congestion and improve air quality benefiting the health and quality of life of our residents.”
Councillor Phil Jones, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Transport & Planning
