Big Bike Revival Southampton 2018
The Big Bike Revival is back! My Journey Southampton teams up with Cycling UK to bring you a summer of cycling!
My Journey Southampton will be taking part in the Big Bike Revival from 5 May to 28th July 2018, with events happening across the city to help people to bring their bikes back into use and gain more confidence to get them back on the saddle.
Cycling UK’s Big Bike Revival is a nationwide drive to get Britain cycling for the summer, helping the vast numbers of people in the UK who have access to a bike, but due to a lack of knowledge confidence and advice, keep their bicycles stashed in the shed. Big Bike Revival events boost people’s confidence on two wheels, showing them a viable, healthy, and more cost-effective form of transport.
There will be hundreds of bike recycling centres, charities and community groups taking part all over the country this year. Last year in Southampton, over 1000 people took part in the Big Bike Revival, and this year there are even more opportunities to get involved – from bike rides, bike doctors, try a bike events and more!
My Journey will be at local community events to help you get your bike back into use by providing bike health checks, sharing maintenance knowhow and providing fun, free activities for all the family.
