Bikes and books – the most natural of bedfellows?

Whether you’re a novice or a keen cyclist, you may be aware that it’s National Bike Week at the moment. A national celebration of cycling, it’s an opportunity for you to brave the (so far) dismal British summer and take part in a wide range of pedal-powered events.

Bikes make for all sorts of strange combinations…bikes and ale, or bikes and camping being just two examples. Now there’s bikes and books! So if you’ve been bitten by the biking bug, there’s more cycling stuff happening later in the year that you might like to try.

Our Bike for Books event takes place on Sunday 4 September 2011. For just £30 each, you get breakfast, snacks, a ride past Rudyard Kipling’s beautiful Sussex home, an after-party and even a Book Aid International t-shirt or vest. All we ask is that you raise £300 or more in sponsorship, which will send 150 much-needed books to communities in African countries.

If you’d like to take part, sign up via the Bike for Books Facebook page, on Broadcause or the challenge registration page. We’d like to make it the biggest Bike for Books yet, so sign up today!
