Cycling UK launches The Big Bike Revival 2023

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

Charity Cycling UK has launched The Big Bike Revival 2023 to support new and returning cyclists through a programme of free events.

Anyone interested can bring their bike along to the sessions. These include Dr Bike events providing a free basic service; maintenance workshops teaching essential repair skills, learn to ride sessions for beginners and led rides supporting people to feel more confident cycling.

Cycling UK hopes that the Big Bike Revival can offer a lifeline to those concerned about the cost-of-living crisis.

Cycling UK head of behaviour change and development Andy Cremin said: “I’m delighted that Big Bike Revival has launched for 2023, to help people drive less and cycle more.

"In a cost-of-living crisis, it’s more important than ever to encourage and support people to make the most cost-effective choices for travelling shorter distances.

“Through this project we’re helping people to ride who don’t fit the usual cycling stereotype of athletes on racing bikes in lycra, which is important. The Big Bike Revival is about helping everyone to cycle for their everyday journeys. You don’t need to have special equipment or clothing to be able to ride a bicycle.”

National Active Travel Commissioner Chris Boardman added: “Active travel is convenient, cheap, healthy and good for the environment. That’s why we want to ensure it is an option available to everyone.

“By offering cycle repairs and delivering helpful training sessions across the country, Big Bike Revival will give many more people the tools and confidence they need to get around under their own steam.”
