Organisations came together to promote the benefits of cycling.

Northumbria Police also attended and provided free security bike marking to promote bike safety.

Dave Buchan, director of Bike4Health, said: “We have worked with Cobalt Park since 2015, developing opportunities for staff to experience the benefits of cycling first hand.

“Our ultimate goal is to get more people onto bikes, so we’re really happy to still be a part of these events.

“Our organisation was formed to encourage the health benefits of cycling as a transport option, and it’s events like these where we can talk to people that really help get our passion across, whether it’s providing our MOT services or just planning out a route for someone.”

Lynn Cramman, business development manager at Cobalt Park, said: “Cobalt is always looking for new ways we can give staff a fresh new outlook on their commuter travel routine.

“We hope that this big spring event will encourage new members to get involved in activities and services available and also interact with the idea of commuting to work by bike.”
