13 to 21 June National Bike Week


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.

8-28 June - Love To RIde Challenge

Love to Ride is a national fun, free workplace challenge that anyone can take part in. It’s not just your cycle to work that counts - you can ride anywhere, anytime, for just ten minutes or more to participate. So it’s great for getting new people into cycling. If you love to ride, then spread the love and get your friends and workmates riding. Find out more at National Cycle Challenge

15-28 - June - Active Essex Cycle Challenge
