Summer of Cycling

During the summer of 2015 there are loads of great cycling activities for you and your staff.

There’s something for everybody at a great cycling event and this summer is full of them! Check out these three stand out events, which guarantee  a fantastic summer of cycling for you and your employees.

Love to Ride: 8th - 28th June

The National Cycle Challenge is a fun, free competition to encourage your colleagues to experience first hand joys and benefits of riding a bike. There are lots of fantastic prizes on offer to encourage you and employees to take part; including 3 new bikes, a trip to New Zealand, city break in Amsterdam or Copenhagen, experience vouchers, great bike gear, and more!
 
It's all about participation – which workplaces can get the most people to ride a bike for just 10 minutes or more? Businesses, organisations, cities and regions will compete against each other to see who can get the most staff to ride a bike between 8 and 28 June.
 
It's not about who can cycle the most miles, but who can encourage the most people to give cycling a go.

Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends. The 2015 event will take place 13-21st June but additional events still take place through until September and beyond!
