Pedal into Wokingham on Monday for a safer cycling event in support of National Bike Week.
A free bike surgery and security marking will be available in Market Place, along with a competition for keen cyclists and a display from Keep Hatch Primary School.
The event runs from 10am to 2pm.
Visitors can sign up to a host of summer cycling events, including free family rides and cycling lessons for over 50s.
Julie Pillai, Wokingham Borough Council road safety officer, said: “The benefits of cycling are well known – it’s good for you and the environment and for short journeys cycling can be as quick as driving.
“Also in these times of high petrol prices, cycling can prove to be an excellent way to save money. We are looking to give people the confidence to get back on their bikes by offering information on where to cycle, safety tips and training.”
