Cycling Initiatives

The Milton Keynes Get on Your Bike Event is run annually in aid of Cancer Research UK. This year it celebrates its 10th anniversary so we plan to make it bigger and better than ever!

It will be held on Sunday 6th September, starting at the Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre at Bradwell Abbey. As well as the bike ride itself there will be lots of family fun for a great day out. Click here for more information >

Green Generation’s aim is to collect old, broken and hopelessly waiting to be used bikes and transform them into ‘Green Bikes’. Every bike that we work on is cleaned, checked and repaired or painted if needed to make you look special.

Training

Cycling training

Milton Keynes Council currently offers free Bikeability training for year 5 and 6 pupils attending participating schools within Milton Keynes.

Bikeability is the national standard for cycle training and is the modern day version of the previous cycle proficiency training scheme.

Level One is completed in the playground and covers Road Safety, the Highway Code, simple bike checks, hand signals and a series of manoeuvres designed to develop bike handling skills.

Level Two is completed on quiet roads and, as well as reinforcing the skills learnt at Level 1, also introduces a range of on-road manoeuvres such as starting off, passing parked vehicles and turning at junctions.

Where to ride

Sportive

Milton Keynes is a fantastic place to cycle - home to a unique network of ‘Redways’ which allow cyclists and pedestrians to get around the entire city without having to cross main roads. There are over 200 miles of Redways and 40 miles of leisure routes taking in a wide variety of scenery, areas of interest and countryside. The Redways provide easy movement around the city with access to key destinations, such as schools, workplaces, shops, leisure facilities, parks and green spaces.

There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a bike ride. British Cycling works with Milton Keynes Council to promote a range of opportunities for people to get cycling whatever their age, ability or interests.
