CYCLISTS of all ages are being encourage to sign up for free tickets to a bike event.

The Pedal Portsmouth Family Festival gives people the chance to enjoy cycling without the worry of vehicles.

The day will have lots of free activities including a 3km cycle course, a safari nature trail, a bike assault course, ‘bling your bike’ activities and lots more.

There will also be space for picnics.

Councillor Donna Jones, leader of Portsmouth City Council, said: ‘This is the second year we are running a Pedal Portsmouth event.

‘It is aimed at getting children and young people cycling in a safe environment, to allow them to build confidence.

‘Portsmouth is one of the fastest growing cycling cities in the UK. It is an ideal place to enjoy on a bike whether you are an experienced cyclist or a beginner.

‘We hope this event will give many people the confidence to cycle more regularly.’

The event at Lakeside North Harbour, off Western Road, in Cosham, is on Sunday, July 3. It is from 11am until 3pm.

Everyone who registers before the event will receive a free cycling goody bag. Sign up at eventbrite.co.uk and search ‘Pedal Portsmouth’.
