Over the four events, people blended smoothies on the smoothie bike, children had their faces painted as one of the Pompey Monsters, and races through an obstacle course. Kids also completed an air quality quiz and colouring activity.
Local business Southsea Cycles offered free bicycle safety checks, Hampshire Police also offered security marking bicycles. Adults with driving licenses learnt to ride a Voi rental e-scooter, and the Mountbatten Centre helped with improving children’s cycling skills.
There were also representatives from local bus services offering information on standard bus transport, in addition to the summer season bus services including the hop on hop off open top seafront service from The Hard to South Parade Pier in Southsea.
Cllr Lynne Stagg, cabinet member for Traffic and Transportation said: “We were really excited to bring these events to communities across Portsmouth, supported by and featuring notable local organisations. Fewer car journeys in the city will help reduce air pollution locally, which is another way that we can improve the health of ourselves and our families."
