Today is the day to get on your bike and take part in the UK’s biggest cycle community event.
Cycle to Work Day is for everyone whether you haven’t cycled for years or are never off your bike, this is about giving it a go.
Since its launch in 2012, thousands of enthusiastic riders have hit the streets to celebrate everyday cycling – and all you need to take part is a bike, new or old, and the desire to ride.
You can cycle on your own or get your colleagues involved – however you do it and however far you go, it’s all about having fun!
Cycle to Work Day runs on Cyclescheme’s Love to Ride community and even if you’re not taking part in today’s challenge but are interested in getting out on two wheels it’s well worth a look at here Cycle Scheme
The Government scheme allows you to save between 25 and 39 per cent on a new bike for work.
Cycling has experienced a huge growth in popularity in recent years and is a fun and effective form of exercise as well as being great for the environment.
Cycling improves your mental well-being as well as your physical health and helping weight loss. It also promotes better lung health, can help cut heart disease and the risk of cancer and the low impact means it has lower injury rates than running.
Did you also know cycling can help you sleep better, it can boost your brain power and even improve your sex life?
And if all that didn’t give you good enough reasons to give cycling a go then how about it growing your social circle too? Joining a club or group is a great way to make new friends and share a common interest too.
