For this year's national Bike Week (Sunday 30th May — Saturday 5th June) Zero Carbon Haddenham and the Safe Walking and Cycling group (HaddSWAC) have put together a self-guided family-friendly bike ride around the village.
To take part, all you need to do is visit zeroch.org/bike-week to download the map and route description. You can set off whenever you like, go at your own pace, and start and finish anywhere along the circular route.
We've included a list of options for refreshments, playgrounds and other places to visit along the way, such as the Museum or the BMX track.
And we're also talking to local businesses about putting on some special deals for those who travel by bike during the week, so watch this space!
So why not head out to explore the village?
As well as getting some exercise, you might discover somewhere new or a useful route through the back streets. And it's a good opportunity to teach the kids how to ride safely and responsibly.
