Cycling UK's Big Bike Revival is back for 2023

Cycling UK, the leading cycling charity, is delighted to announce the return of its highly successful initiative, the Big Bike Revival. Aimed at encouraging people across the United Kingdom to dust off their bicycles and get back in the saddle, the campaign is set to reignite the nation's passion for cycling and promote its many benefits.

The Big Bike Revival, now in its sixth year, has become a flagship event in Cycling UK’s calendar. With a renewed focus on making cycling accessible for all, the campaign aims to empower people of all ages and backgrounds to discover or rediscover the joy of cycling.

Through the Big Bike Revival, Cycling UK aims to address common barriers that may prevent people from cycling, such as lack of confidence, limited access to bicycles, and inadequate cycling infrastructure. By providing support, resources, and activities, the campaign strives to make cycling a viable and enjoyable mode of transportation for individuals and communities.

The campaign will feature a series of local events and activities across the UK, including bike repair sessions, confidence-building workshops, guided rides, and cycling festivals. These events, organized in partnership with local cycling groups, businesses, and community organizations, aim to create a supportive environment for both new and experienced cyclists.

As part of the Big Bike Revival, Cycling UK will facilitate bike loan schemes and offer free bicycle health checks to ensure that people have access to safe and well-maintained bikes. Participants will also have the opportunity to receive expert guidance on cycling skills, road safety, and maintenance, empowering them to become more confident cyclists.

Through the Big Bike Revival, Cycling UK is committed to promoting cycling as a sustainable and healthy mode of transportation. By encouraging more people to cycle, the campaign aims to reduce traffic congestion, promote physical activity, improve air quality, and contribute to a greener environment.

John Thompson, Director of Community Engagement at Cycling UK, expressed his excitement for the Big Bike Revival, stating,

“We are thrilled to bring back the Big Bike Revival for another year. This campaign has already touched the lives of thousands of people, inspiring them to rediscover the joy of cycling. By providing accessible opportunities, support, and resources, we hope to empower individuals and communities to make cycling a regular part of their lives.”
