There isn't enough space to tell you about all the celebrations of cycling taking place all over France on the weekend of June 6 and 7.

Most major cities and towns large and small will be holding their own Fête du Vélo based around local rides, bike workshops, films and music.

The events cover the full spectrum of cycling from family cycling and mountain bike rides to road races and sportives.

There is only one rule and that's to come dressed in blue, the 'official colour' of celebrations this year.
