A CHILDFEN'S 'bike fun' workshop is being set up tomorrow (Sat) in the City of London as part of Bike Week.

Four Danish instructors have been hired by their London embassy to teach youngsters about cycling practices in Denmark.

The whole area around Smithfield Market is being closed to traffic and dedicated to activities such as a 'folding bike' race and a 'fixed longest skid' competition.

Youngsters can register for Saturday's workshop at Charterhouse Street, 2pm to 6pm, by phone on 020-7333 0246, or go online under 'Cycles and Walks' or 'Love Your Street', or on the Face Partnership website, or send an email here to Sophie Clausen.
