From June 8th - 28th our partners Love to Ride are running the first National Cycle Challenge to get more people riding bikes. A major part of Bike Week and available at no cost to people and organisations everywhere, the Challenge is a friendly competition to see which organisation can get the highest proportion of their staff to try riding a bike during the three-week event.
Registration is quick and simple – just start logging your trips on the website or smartphone app to go into the draw, with some great prizes up for grabs including a trip to New Zealand, breaks in European and UK cycling hotspots, brand new bikes, bike gear and loads more besides. Integrated with Strava for 2015, it’s never been easier to ride and win! For workplaces finishing in the top spots, there’s fully installed cycle parking to be won.
Register online now: www.lovetoride.net/uk and help spread your old-school or new-found love of two wheels by encouraging your colleagues, family and friends to do the same.
This year, Bike Week (13-21 June) is the middle week of the Challenge and has a Ride to Work theme. So if you don’t already cycle to work, this is a great opportunity to give it a go. There will be a host of events to encourage more people to take up cycling to work and for businesses to provide the facilities to support them.
Bike Week also encourages business and companies to host and put on their own events. By registering your event with Bike Week, you will be entitled to a bundle of FREE benefits including event insurance, promotional materials and other useful resources.
Together, we can make Bike Week 2015 bigger than ever before as we aim to encourage over 500,000 people to take part in hundreds of events and rides. One way we’re aiming to achieve this is via social media and social networks.
Follow and like Bike Week on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date with news, information and unique content (Bike Week’s hashtag is: #BikeWeekUK).
