Liverpool BID are super excited to be running a one-day Active Travel Summit Bike Event here in Liverpool City Centre.
Bring your own bike along to get fixed by DR Bike or learn to fix with one of their bike mechanics, learn to ride with bikes provided at their Bikeability area or test ride some of their demo e-bikes and secure your bike by getting it registered on the BikeRegister.
What is the Active Travel Bike Event?
The Active Travel Summit Bike Event is all about helping everyone and anyone to begin or return to cycling through a series of FREE activities and services, delivered by organisations who are part of the community and address local needs.
With a vision to make cycling accessible to everyone, their mission is to deliver tools that enable members of the community to start cycling through fixing bikes, teaching skills and leading rides.
The event is organised by Liverpool BID Company, supported by local authorities and together we address a clear set of aims and objectives:
- Encourage people who don’t already, to cycle
- Encourage people to cycle more often
- Improve people’s confidence to cycle
- Improve the perception of cycle safety
- Increase short cycling journeys
- Encourage the use of cycling as a mode of transport
FIX – Fixing Bikes – fixing bikes locally to ensure people have the OPPORTUNITY to cycle.
LEARN – Teaching Skills – Teaching skills to ensure that people have the CAPABILITY to cycle.
RIDE – Leading Rides – social rides to ensure people have the MOTIVATION to cycle.
