Love to Ride: Cycle September
07 September 2020
By Hayley Carmichael
Every year Love to Ride run Cycle September. The UK charity has gone global with it, and we’re encouraging everyone to take part…
Everyone welcome to register for Cycle September - it's free and you can win prizes!
We encourage everyone who cycles (and those who might be tempted to start) to sign up to #CycleSeptember which runs between 1st and 30th September. It’s a month long competition to get more people cycling than ever.
Register your rides as a Trust employee and you can win some great prizes for taking part and for actively encouraging others to take part too, plus there is a leader board so we can see which Trust is cycling the most and get some healthy competition going.
An easy way for us to Care Without Carbon
While the health benefits of cycling are obvious, we’re also keen to reduce the local air pollution around our sites, which will help us all (and especially our patients) breathe a little easier. We are running a campaign called Swap in September this year, so taking part in Cycle September fits perfectly as the message is simply swap how you travel for a less polluting alternative.
You could also sign up for our Dare Cycle Challenge called Pedal Power, and logging your rides through Love to Ride will make it easier for you to calculate how far you have traveled for the challenge.
Even if you choose to cycle just one day per week, that is one less car on the roads for that day which all adds up to cleaner air.
For a little extra motivation, you’ll also be saving money on fuel and car wear and tear!
