Mayor Phil Marks said Bikeweek provided the opportunity for people considering getting back on their bikes to join the strong community of cyclists.

‘Cycling is an enjoyable way to exercise and increase energy and it also cuts down on the amount of car trips, which is greatly beneficial for the environment,’ he said.

Breakfast will be available to people arriving on their bikes and will include healthy options, as well as coffee.

In addition to free breakfast, there will be free bike maintenance checks and the chance to win a variety of prizes.

n Bikeweek 2015 is held from March 14-22.
