A Cycle, Skating and Scooter Awareness Day to be held at Bournemouth Pier Approach from 10am this Saturday 26 June will raise awareness of the annual summer cycling restrictions on the promenade, which begin on 1 July and run until 31 August. There will be much of interest for the cycling, skating and scooter enthusiast with information on the seafront promenade no-cycling zone and alternative routes that can be taken, as well as some educational games with prizes donated by Beryl.
A range of local agencies and cycling/scooter service providers will be brought together for the event. Dorset Police and BCP Seafront Rangers will provide information about the summer restrictions, as well as offering to stamp and register private bikes on BikeRegister.
Cllr Mike Greene, BCP Council’s portfolio holder for Transport and Sustainability said: “This summer is going be busier than ever and we want people to both enjoy our seafront and to cycle, skate and scoot safely around our beautiful towns. By offering an educational approach with this event, we can inform about the summer promenade restrictions and provide details of alternative routes for cyclists, skaters and e-scooterists. This will hopefully ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment while reducing the amount of infringements.”
Bournemouth’s Front Bike Hire will be offering bike servicing and safety checks at the event along with general cycling information for the area.
Another attraction will be demonstrations, games with prizes and training sessions on e-scooter skills from cycle and e-Scooter hire provider, Beryl.
Phil Ellis from Beryl said: “We’re anticipating our bikes and e-scooters to be in high demand this summer, as people continue to enjoy their convenience, flexibility, and wider environmental benefits.”
