It has been another successful and busy Bike Week for the team, with a whole host of activities taking place during the course of the week.
Firstly to prepare for Bike Week, a Dr Bike maintenance session was held for Sefton Council staff at Magdalen House in Bootle. This was to give people the chance to have their bikes checked over and in perfect shape to be able to take full advantage of all the events and activities Bike Week has to offer. As usual, the event was very popular and Ross was inundated with bikes and requests and 12 bikes were returned to their owners fully serviced and repaired for free.
This was followed by a GoByBike Information Fair, showcasing the variety of routes, maps, guides and other resources and activities on offer, together with advice on getting the most of not just their bikes, but walking too.
As part of the Information Fair, a ‘Computrainer Challenge’ was held for staff in Magdalen House, Bootle. Always guaranteed to bring out any competitive streaks, once again gauntlets were thrown down as managers and staff alike fought to be crowned the fastest on the 1 mile track.
A Family Cycle Ride was then held at St Jerome’s Primary School, Formby. Despite a certain football match taking place and somewhat less favourable weather conditions, nearly 100 adults and children came along to enjoy a leisurely ride around Formby.
There was still more to come though, as the team then finished the week off at Waterloo Community Festival with the portable mountain bike track, but more to come on that!
