To start half term, Swindon Travel Choices and Beat the Street are hosting a cycle roadshow at the Orbital Retail Park.

The exhibition on Monday between 10am and 3pm and aims to promote the benefits of cycling and highlight the many traffic-free routes that are available across the town.

There will also be a bike doctor mechanic who will be checking over machines that families bring along. Swindon Cycles will be offering a selection of bikes and accessories for people to buy.

Visitors to the event will be able to pick up a new Swindon cycle map and bike safety freebies, advice and information.

Coun Maureen Penny said: “We have some really great cycle routes in Swindon, which have benefitted from substantial government funding over the last few years. I want to encourage as many people as possible to give cycling a try so they can take advantage of the tremendous health benefits, while also doing their bit for the environment.”
