Make this the week you try cycling! Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling as part of daily life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. This year's focus is on cycling to work and there are two workplace challenges that your organisation could take part in.
Bike Week demonstrates the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling. The week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to work, school and the local shops, or just to visit friends.
If your organisation is keen to promote healthier and more sustainable lifestyles then check out the challenges below.
