"Get on it!" That’s the message of Bike Month 2003, which features organised and disorganised rides, workshops, bike block parties, happenings and cycle fests throughout June. The mood will be fun, inclusive, creative, festive and occasionally a tad anarchic. The aim: to get more pedal-pushers out there, whether that be to reduce the amount of trips to work made by Single Occupancy Vehicles (SOVs) or to simply have a good time.
There is no lack of activities for all levels and ages. "The list of events is getting longer every year," says Richard Campbell of Better Environmentally Sound Transport (BEST), the organisation behind the annual extravaganza.
