Support National Bike Week from 6 to 14 June and Bike Month throughout June
Everyday cycling for everyone
The nation’s biggest celebration of cycling, now in its 96th year, starts Saturday 6th June, lovingly known as Bike Week. Every year people are encouraged to have a go at cycling, whether it is 5 minutes down the road or a more ambitious journey.
Over the course of the week you’ll see all sorts of information and promotions that share the many benefits of cycling from environmental to health and wealth (just think of all that petrol money you could save).
In addition Love to Ride are launching Bike Month for the whole of June this year – sign up on their website to take part, log your rides and maybe even win goodies.
Taking part is easy
Over half a million people took part last year, why not be part of the story too?
You can just go for it that week and hop on two wheels – getting involved is as easy as that. Check out the Cycle UK website for more on Bike Week and have a look at the online resources that are available to support you.
Get active on social media with the hashtag #7daysofcycling and share pics of your ride.
Need a bike?
Most NHS Trust’s have a bike to work scheme which can help make getting a bike much more affordable. Check out your intranet for more info.
You can make a pledge to cycle more as part of our Dare to Care programme too, visit www.carewithoutcarbon.org/dares to make your pledge today!
