Get on your bike!
Cycling to work has a number of benefits: It's a great way to get some exercise in the fresh air, it saves you money- not having to pay for any fuel for the car or buy a bus ticket, and you will arrive at work feeling less stressed and ready to work! Cycling is often a time saver in big cities, a number of research projects have proved that cycling to work is often faster than driving and you’re exercising at the same time as commuting so getting two
things done at once!
Last year National Cycle to work days was supported by over 20,000 commuters who clocked up over a quarter of a million miles. And this year they want to even more people to take part. As part of the day, there are free bike health checks available, just click here to find your local service. There is no excuse for not getting on your bike! According to census data over 750,000 cycle to work regularly. They want this to rise to over 1 million by 2021, so now is the perfect time to get that bike out of the garage and go for a ride.
If you are keen to take part, make you make a pledge to cycle to work and you will be entered into a competition to win one of three bikes. If you're an employer or your employer is keen to encourage everyone to cycle to work, make sure they make the pledge to show their support.
