The event proved a success with families and local community groups, as they came on down with their bikes and cycled laps of the circuit – either for fun, or to help fundraise for good causes.

It was organised by Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council (HBBC), in partnership with Race Rapid, a team running cycling at the Mallory Circuit, who aim to help everyone experience cycling in a ‘safe and traffic-free’ environment.

Hinckley and Bosworth Mayor, Coun. Dawn Glenville, and her husband and consort, Coun. Barry Walker, both shown up to the event and met with attendees.

Wheels For All also attended with their ‘fantastic range’ of adapted bikes for anyone to try, along with Mini Bikers and the Choose How You Move Team from Leicestershire County Council and Leicestershire Police.

Coun. Keith Nichols, the Borough Council’s Executive Member for Culture, Leisure, Tourism and Town Centres, said: “It was great to see this popular event return this year, offering everyone an ideal opportunity to take their cycle for a spin in a safe and secure environment.

“Cycling is a fantastic method of exercise and suitable for all ages. Thanks to everyone who came along and supported this event.”

National Bike Week runs from Monday, 6 June through to Sunday, 12 June.
