Cycle to Work Day encourages people across the UK to get on their bike and give cycle commuting a go for one day. Why? Because cycling to work is brilliant! It’s an easy way to boost your health and fitness, improve your wellbeing and show some love to the environment.
This year’s event takes place on Wednesday 13th September and celebrates its fifth birthday – so the celebration of cycling will be bigger than ever! Cycle to Work Day started in 2013, and every year this annual event has grown. Today, it’s a way of celebrating those who are already passionate cycle commuters, as well as those who are giving it a go for the very first time.
So dust off your favourite bike and get ready to join in the UK’s biggest one-day celebration of cycle commuting on Wednesday 13th September 2017.
Ready to get involved in Cycle to Work Day, but in need of a decent ride?
If you’ve not ridden a bike since childhood, chances are that you’ll be in the market for a new bike. Luckily, there's an easy and affordable way to get your hands on a bike in time for Cycle to Work Day.
The cycle to work scheme is a fantastic way to get your new commuting bike. Backed by the Government’s Green Transport Plan, the scheme makes a bike affordable. You can get a new bike as well as new commuting gear, and make a tax saving (of at least 25% on RRP) and get to spread the cost too – brilliant!
Most workplaces offer a cycle to work scheme as an employee benefit – ask your HR or People Teams for more info. If your organisation doesn’t, take a look at Cyclescheme: a leading scheme provider that has helped more than 1 million people in the UK discover the joy of cycle commuting.
Pop in to any of your local Bike Shed stores and our helpful staff will be happy to help you find your perfect bike.
