The Belvoir Shopping Centre is helping to launch this year’s Coalville Big Family Bike Ride, which takes place on Sunday 15th September, by playing host to Keelan Philips, the European Flat Land BMX Champion this Saturday.
The Coalville Big Family Bike Ride, which is organised by Leicestershire County Council and aims to promote the recently built Coalville cycling network, environmentally-friendly travel and active lifestyles, will feature entertainment and a range of activities for all ages and abilities. To help raise awareness of the event Keelan, who has recently taken part in the Channel Four documentary “Concrete Circus”, will be showing off his skills at the Belvoir Shopping Centre from 10am to 3pm on Saturday 14th September.
Shoppers will be able watch Keelan perform a number of his most incredible tricks and talk to representatives from the county council about the Big Bike Ride and how they and their families can get involved.
“The Coalville Big Family Bike Ride is a fantastic way of getting the community together, promoting the town centre and encouraging people to get on their bikes and keep fit. As such we are more than happy to host Keelan and raise awareness of the event,” explains a representative from The Belvoir Centre.
Peter Osborne, Leicestershire County Council Cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “We have recently organised The Loughborough Big Bike Ride and it was a huge success, attracting over 500 people. We hope the Coalville Family Bike Ride day will be as popular and we encourage anyone who is interested to come down to the Belvoir Shopping Centre on the 14th September to see what it is all about.”
The Coalville Big Family Bike Ride takes place between 10am and 3pm on Sunday, September 15th at the North West Leicestershire District Council Offices in Whitwick Road.
The action packed day will include stunt displays, mystery treasure trails, free bike maintenance sessions and a host of other family activities.
