Although Cambridge Cycling Campaign now has less involvement with local events for Bike Week than in former years, several events are being organised. A leaflet printed by the local councils should be included in the printed copy of the Newsletter. An on-line versions is here. Bike Week this year is 17-25 June 2006. The Campaign is involved in two events, and could increase this to three.

First are the free Cyclists’ Breakfasts on Wednesday 21 June from 8-9am. We need volunteers to give out leaflets and stickers, as well as to eat the breakfasts. The locations are Tesco in Milton and Waitrose in Trumpington.

Second is a ride on Sunday 25 June to Reach via NCN 51. Volunteers can help, or anyone can join in. If you would like to volunteer please contact the Campaign.

The possible extra is the Everyday Sport Roadshow on Sunday 11 June on Parker’s Piece, where we’ve been asked if we can have our stall. The event will run from 10 am until 3 pm. The Stall will need volunteers, and this event should be a good opportunity to recruit new members.
