Campaign to get more people cycling after new partnership formed

Thousands of events are being planned aimed at encouraging millions more people to cycle.

Cycling UK and retail giant Halfords have joined forces in a new three-year partnership, which will include a number of local projects and a National Bike Week in mid-June.

Paul Tuohy, chief executive of Cycling UK said: "This great new partnership with Halfords will really help Cycling UK to get more people cycling more often.

"With over 460 Halfords stores adding their support to our 67,000 members, we will help to get more Britons into cycling."

The partnership will see a programme of free promotional activities in the coming months, including free bike checks.
