Guernsey Bicycle Group (GBG) supports National Bike Week 2011 (18 - 26 June) - do you?
This week is an annual opportunity to:
"promote cycling and show how it can easily be part of everyday life".
Many locals are taking the plunge to get on their bike so why not be a part of it and get on yours!
It is so easy to just jump in the car to go to work or the shops if you are running late or have lots of baggage.
But do you really need the car?
Could you have made that journey on bike instead?
It is questions like these that the Guernsey Bicycle Group (GBG) are going to be asking you to ask yourself in just over a week’s time as National Bike Week approaches. GBG exists to benefit everyone who lives on Guernsey by encouraging the use of bicycles and other environmentally friendly forms of transport to reduce the adverse effects of the internal combustion engine. GBG is a voluntary group working for the Guernsey community and will be supporting Team Green Britain Bike Week.
Team Green Britain Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling and show how bicycling can easily be part of everyday life.
From the 18th to 26th June people across the UK and Channel Islands will be taking part in what hopes to be the biggest nationwide cycling event. Its aim to encourage people to rethink their everyday journeys, make everyday cycling for everyone and inspire people to try out cycling – for fun, and as a means of getting around.
Why not set yourself the challenge to swap your car for your bike for this week to get to work, the gym, the shops, see friends etc and see how you get on. Encourage your partner, children, friends, work colleagues and get as many people involved.
Whether you are already a keen cyclist or a plain lazy cyclist, National Bike Week is your chance to get out on your bicycle and soak up what Guernsey has to offer at a slower and more leisurely pace, come rain or shine!
So are you ready to get on your bike?
If you want to join in but feel your bike just isn't up to shape and requires a little TLC, then take it along to Ian Brown's Cycle Shop so you and your bike are ready for the challenge.
