The organisation has united Friends of the Guild Wheel, Sustrans, and Climate Action Preston to organise Bike Week (6 to 12 June) activities centred on the theme ‘Everyday Cycling’, with a final event on 12 June at Avenham Park Pavillion between 12 and 4pm.

The initiative aims to encourage Preston residents to ride their bikes on Bike Week 2022, including exploring local areas like the Guild Wheel or local cycle paths with friends, colleagues and family or commutes to shops, school and work, with one ride in the week or several.

Preston pedals said people should swap one commute to school or work or a trip to the shops done by car for a journey by bike.

It is a self-led activity for people to undertake anytime during Bike Week and is flexible to fit in with busy lives, and participants can choose their own route. 

Bike Week finishes on Sunday, 12 June, with a final UK Bike Week Event – Preston Pedals at the Park 2022.

Participants can share their stories and selfies of their activities during Bike Week.

Preston Pedals’ team will be on hand to answer questions, and there will be a smoothie bike, food stands and various exhibitors in partnership with Friends of the Guild Wheel, Climate Action Preston, Pedal Away/Wheels for All, and Sustrans.

Preston Pedals is a Climate Action Preston project that supports communities to get on their bikes and helps reduce waste by reusing and recycling bikes that otherwise might end up in landfills.

It is supported by National Lottery Together for the Planet.

Participants are encouraged to share their stories, take a selfie with their bike, and tag the group with @PrestonAction.

Participants can also email information about their ride and any images to cycling@climateactionpreston.org.
