A vibrant trail celebrating local creativity and ingenuity is on display at a local country park.

To mark Bike Week, which ends on June 16, the spectacular Pedal Power Parade has returned to Alyn Waters thanks to funding from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

Local community groups, charities, schools, and businesses have come together to transform ordinary bicycles into extraordinary works of art.

This year’s parade aims to foster community spirit, promote well-being, and advocate for environmental sustainability and sustainable transport.

The bikes have formed a vibrant trail of creatively decorated bikes displayed throughout the Pedal Power one mile cycle loop.

Hanna Clarke, Project Lead for Pedal Power said: “The support from local community groups and businesses has been fantastic.

“We have lots of amazingly decorated bikes on display. A huge thank you to everyone who has taken part.”

Jane Edwards, Community Support Hub Officer for AVOW at the Gwersyllt Community Hub, said: “This is Gwersyllt Community Hub’s second year of being involved in the Pedal Power Parade.

“Adults and children have enjoyed adding photos, crochet squares, flowers, names and more to the bike, showing great community spirit.

“The Hub is looking forward to getting out and about in the fresh air and visiting Alyn Waters to see all the Pedal Power bikes on display. Diolch!”

Michelle Ward from Porvair Sciences Limited on the Wrexham Ind Estate said: “Being part of this year’s Pedal Power Parade has been great. Decorating the bike with waste material really makes you think about waste differently and has engaged everyone involved.”
