City of London celebrates Bike Week for the first time

full info at www.citycyclists.org.uk

The first ever celebration of Bike Week (17-25 June 2006) in the City offers a great range of events from a cycle show organised by the police in the Guildhall Yard, the launch of subsidised cycle training to architectural bike tours. It couldn't have come at a better time with official figures showing that bicycles now make up 10% of the City's vehicular traffic. Join in the excitement as cycling achieves critical mass in the centre of Europe's biggest city.

SPECIAL NOTICE: if you are cycling through the City this Saturday and see a flock of sheep don't worry, you're not dreaming. It's part of a moving installation as they are due to be herded from the Tate to Smithfields Market for a street fair.
