Cycle to Work Day is back! On Thursday 5th August, we want to give people across the UK a much-needed boost through cycling.
For 2021, we’re taking inspiration from our Dutch friends. In the Netherlands, locals have a relaxed attitude when it comes to riding – wearing clothes that they feel are appropriate, rather than relying only on specific gear and gadgets. It’s one of the reasons why cycling is such a popular mode of transport.
This Cycle to Work Day, we want you to try travelling by bike on for size – whatever gear you’re in. Do it in your workwear, your workout gear or your working-from-home comfies (we recommend leaving the slippers at home though).
