Big Bike Revival 2019

The Big Bike Revival is back!

The Big Bike Revival is a nationwide drive to get Britain cycling for the summer, taking place from 3rd May to 27th July 2019. In Southampton, events will be taking place across the city to help people to bring their bikes back into use and gain the confidence to get cycling again.

Cycling UK is supporting local community groups to take part in Big Bike Revival by providing small grants that enable them to run their own biking activities. These events will be centred around learning cycle skills, repairing bikes and leading rides for the 3 month period between May and July.

My Journey Southampton will be helping to kick off the start of the Big Bike Revival with a launch event at the Bargate on the 3rd May from 10am-7pm. The Cycle Savvy Pitstop will be providing free bike health checks and minor repairs. If you have been thinking about buying a bicycle for a while, there will be a range of bicycles on hand to try out in a safe, designated area. There will be balance bikes available for young children to practice their balancing skills on, with lots of local information to signpost you to events happening throughout the summer.

Find Big Bike Revival events in your area by visiting the Cycling UK website where new events will be posted regularly. Alternatively, check the My Journey events page throughout the summer to keep updated on Big Bike Revival news and events in Southampton.
