More than 45,000 people took part in Cycle to Work Day in 2016 – why not join them this year and be part of our fifth anniversary party on Wednesday 13th September and experience the sheer joy of everyday cycling? The event has grown in popularity every year since it began in 2012 as more and more people discover the bike as a practical and pleasurable means of commuting. More employers can see the benefits too, with over a thousand supporting the day in 2016 and backing their staff.
We want to use this fifth Cycle to Work Day to encourage even more of you to give cycling a go. We want you to experience for yourself how cycling is such a great way to travel, a way that keeps you healthy, saves you money and gives you a golden glow of satisfaction. Beware though – once bitten by the bug you’re in danger of wanting to spend more and more time on your bike, riding for pleasure and leisure as well as to work and back.
We’d love you to sign up and help smash these 2016 record-breaking statistics:
- 673,438 miles ridden in total – that’s more than 27 times around the world
- enough calories burned to complete over 165 Tour de France races
- enough CO2 saved that equated to more than 19 return flights from London to Sydney

To help unlock the many benefits of the bicycle, Love to Ride are running a fun competition to get more people cycling.
