Free breakfast anyone?

Thousands of people in Brighton & Hove will get a free breakfast if they cycle to work for Bike Week, 18 to 22 June. Brighton & Hove City Council's JourneyOn campaign has teamed up with three of the city’s biggest employers to offer hungry office workers a free breakfast and musical entertainment if they get to work on two wheels.

On Monday 18 anyone cycling past the Level can pick up a pastry, a piece of fruit and a cup of coffee for free from the Meal on Two Wheels breakfast stand, where 20s jazz band Tula and the Bakelites will help start Monday morning with a swing.

On Tuesday 19 June, staff from Brighton & Hove City Council will get a free breakfast. On Wednesday 20 June, EDF Energy’s 1200 employees and the 300 staff at the Primary Care Trust can get the most important meal of the day for free and on Thursday 21 June Legal and General’s 2000 workers will receive a free breakfast if they cycle to the office. Accordion playing chanteuse Frankie Chalet will bring a little Parisian glamour to each occasion.

The Meals on Wheels stand will be at the Peace Statue on Hove Seafront on Friday 22 June, giving out free bike breakfasts, accompanied by brass and percussion band Fanfara, guaranteed to give you that Friday feeling.

The scheme, called Meals of Two Wheels has been organised for national Bike Week by JourneyOn, the city council’s campaign to promote sustainable transport,

Chairman of the council’s environment committee, Cllr Geoffrey Theobald, said: “Brighton & Hove is a fantastic city to cycle in, especially in summer. I hope these free breakfasts will encourage people who don’t normally cycle to get on their bikes and have a go.”

There are loads of benefits to riding a bike. Cycling is good for your health. Regular cycling can halve the risk of heart disease, reduce blood pressure and lower stress levels.

Research shows people who cycle on a regular basis have the same fitness levels as people ten years younger. They also live an average of two years longer.
