The Big Bike Revival

May 31, 2018








DATE: 31st May 2018


People living in Penistone and surrounding areas are being urged to fall back in love with their bikes as part of a national drive by the cycling charity, Cycling UK.

The organisation has pledged to get at least 25,000 people back cycling and riding regularly by the end of the summer as part of its Big Bike Revival project.

CYCLE PENISTONE is lending a hand by putting on events in Penistone, Silkstone, Elsecar and Worsbrough, providing bike check-ups (“Dr. Bike”), pop-up maintenance workshops and sales of recycled bikes (all with a three-month warranty)

The aim is to encourage the 42 per cent of the population who own a bike but never use it to rediscover the joy of cycling.

James Scott, Cycling UK’s Director of Development said: “We’ve found that people sometimes just need that extra helping hand to build cycling into their lives and that’s where we’re here to help.

“Often people tell us they don’t use their bikes because they either lack the confidence or skills, or their bike needs a bit of tender loving care.

“Our events in the Barnsley area aim to tackle those barriers and encourage everyone to join and learn again to enjoy the ride.”

Last year, Big Bike Revival events around the country reached more than 64,000 people, fixed around 1,600 bikes and helped around 18,500 take up cycling as a regularly activity.

This year, the project is aiming to reach more people and restore more bikes.

We at CYCLE PENISTONE are delighted to be involved with the Big Bike Revival, so if you have an unloved bike sitting gathering dust in your shed or garage, bring it to us and we’ll help you get back up and running.

Cycling is not only fun, but has proven and profound health, social and environmental benefits.

But currently only 17 per cent of people in Britain cycle at least once a week, despite 25 million people owning a bike.

The Big Bike Revival runs from 4th May until 28th July. You can find full details on the website
