Thursday 6th August is Cycle to Work Day, which is the UK’s biggest cycle commuting event!
However, this year many of our ‘commutes’ have changed. You might be thinking ‘Cycle to… Who? What? where?’ or ‘How on earth will I fit a bike ride into my new commute downstairs?’. In 2020 we’re embracing the unknown, so why not ride anywhere, for any reason and with anyone? It’s still Cycle to Work Day, but with a twist.
So, no matter what the state of your current commute is, you can get involved. Whether it’s early morning, afternoon or after work. Perhaps it’s making time for a quick lunch-break bike ride? Leaving the car at home for your trip to the shop? Or even a socially distanced cycle with family and friends. If you’re planning a journey of any kind on Thursday 6 August 2020, get on your bike!
To get involved simply hop on your bike, log your journey on Love To Ride and inspire others to get involved alongside you. All you have to do is:
- Download the Love to Ride app from the App Store or Google Play
- Create your profile on the Cyclescheme Community
- If you already use Strava or Under Armour Connected Fitness, sync your tracker app to your Love to Ride account. Or, track with Love to Ride itself.
- Log your Cycle to Work Day ride for the chance to win prizes
There are loads of advantages to cycling, for your health and also for the environment – which you can check out on the GoGreen blog
But if that wasn’t enough, Cycle Scheme and Love to Ride are giving you that extra push by giving away great prizes. To enter the Cycle to Work Day prize draw, just follow the steps above. And don’t forget to post your cycle selfies!
