Get on ya' bike - Cycling roadshow is back

Boston Big Local and Boston Borough Council are giving you another chance to get on your bike.

Returning to Boston Market Place after two previous successful events, the Get Cycling Roadshow provides the opportunity to try out a variety of unusual and conventional bikes as well as a KMX Kart track for teenagers and those who are more adventurous. And younger riders, up to the age of 7, have not been forgotten either, with a variety of kids' trikes and bikes provided for their use.

After a year's break, the popular Mega-Bike returns, where everyone contributes with pedal power, as well as a free cycle clinic for maintenance and minor repairs. Also on offer is free micro-chipping of cycles for those who arrive early to the event. The first 30 visitors will get their cycle micro-chipped free of charge by Lincolnshire Police (normal price £6.50).

Members of Boston Wheelers, the town's largest and oldest cycling club, will be on hand to encourage local youngsters to take up junior cycling.

Richard Tory, chairman of Boston Big Local, said "Boston Cycling Roadshow has quickly established itself as a popular family event, and we're therefore delighted to be the main sponsor again. We hope that while visitors are at the Roadshow they will pop and see us to tell us about their priorities for the town."

Open from 10am to 3pm on Friday, July 27, the open-air event is entirely free. A fun event for everyone to take part in and enjoy.
