National Bike Week ends tomorrow (Saturday) and Slough has seen a wide range of events aimed at getting children and adults back onto two wheels.

They include a visit by the council's sustainable transport team 'Better by' to Colnbrook Church of England School in the High Street, pitting students against students to post the fastest times on static bikes.

A padlock competition at St Mary’s CofE Primary School, Yew Tree Rd, saw some students finding a lucky padlock on their bike and winning a prize; while a healthy biker’s breakfast awaited pupils of Arbour Vale School, Farnham Road, who come to school on two wheels.

As part of the bigger Slough Go Cycle Campaign, 10 schools in the borough have signed up to make a commitment to get more children cycling for their school journey.

For adults the week started off with the chance to refresh their skills with the adult cycle training at Salt Hill Park on Saturday.

Staff at O2 got the chance to commute via Slough Cycle Hire with a new hire station positioned right outside its offices on Bath Road. While 'Better by' leant cycle hire bikes to carers.

The cycle hire scheme has recently been revamped and provides bikes for anyone over 16 which can be used for commuting to a lunch time ride. To celebrate Bike Week, people using it were able to cycle for free.
