During Bike Week (June 13-21) Dunbar businesses Belhaven Bikes and The Royal Mackintosh Hotel are teaming up to bring more cycling joy while raising charity cash.
The STV Appeal is committed to helping children and young people affected by poverty in Scotland. STV’s weatherman, Sean Batty, has been one of the Appeal’s biggest supporters. This year Sean is undertaking another grueling cycle challenge, cycling over 250km from Tarbert to Dunbar.
Bike Week is an annual event which shows how cycling can easily be part of everyday life. Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK.
Belhaven Bikes are joining in the Bike Week celebrations again this year by offering free bike hire, where you can hire a bike from them, free for a day, to discover the benefits of cycling.
You could try cycling to work, take a trip to the local shops, visit a friend, one of the many local, visitor attractions or why not join Sean Batty when he cycles through East Lothian on Sunday, June 14, for the STV Appeal?
Bike safety checks are also available in their cycle workshop and donations to the STV Appeal will be gratefully received while you enjoy free hire or a safety check.
The Royal Mackintosh hotel in Dunbar is also joining in the fundraising to welcome Sean and the STV Appeal team to Dunbar.
On Sunday, June 14, Belhaven Bikes will set up a stationary bike at the hotel and you can sponsor their staff to keep up the pace with Sean as he cycles through East Lothian.
There will also be a pub quiz that day at the Royal Mackintosh. The big question is, can Sean answer the weather questions correctly?
