Dame Sarah Storey is a Paralympian and cyclist with an astonishing 11 gold medals under her belt. She kicked off the London 2012 Paralympic games by securing Britain’s first gold medal in the women’s individual C5 pursuit. Team GB went on to win a further 33 gold medals, with Sarah picking up another 3 herself. As a result, she is one of the most decorated Paralympians in British history.
Cyclescheme is working with Dame Sarah to help spread the word about cycling to work and encourage more people to take to two-wheels for their commute.
"Since cycling is one of the best modes of transport for local journeys and Cyclescheme provides the means for people to obtain a bike in order to make those journeys to work, it was an obvious choice to become involved with the company. If we start by encouraging people to cycle to work, then they'll feel healthier, will save money and be more inclined to ride their bikes for other journeys and leisure time too,“ said Dame Sarah.

There are over 350,000 of you out there who have already taken part in the Cycle to Work scheme with Cyclescheme and it is estimated that over 750,000 people commute to work by bike in the UK - that's astonishing!

National Cycle to Work Day
Dame Sarah will also be working with us to introduce the UK's first National Cycle to Work Day on 26th September 2013 - a day where we want as many people as possible to get on their bikes and cycle to work. "I'm looking forward to working with Cyclescheme on the National Cycle to Work Day at the end of the summer to encourage even more people to challenge themselves, dust off the bike and cycle to work," said Dame Sarah.
