BBC1s Blue Peter is featuring the Gary Linekar-backed Bikeathon regularly. The rides will start from 70 locations all over the UK and will use parts of the National Cycle Network. For locations, see below.

Sustrans are seeking volunteers to hand out flyers and magazines at the 70 start locations, and this could also be a good excuse for IBDs to get involved.

Email Paul Hilton on paulh@sustrans.org.uk.

Further details on the Bikeathon events can be obtained from Blue Peter Bikeathon, PO Box 1234, London WC1R 4XA.

The Bikeathon website (www.bbc.co.uk/bluepeter/bikeathon/index.shtml) has a safe cycling checklist but no links to useful websites so bikebiz.co.uk has emailed Blue Peter suggesting the following links are added:
