August 1

The UK’s biggest celebration of cycle commuting is back on 1st August 2024!

Whether you’ve never cycled before, not ridden in a while or cycle every day, #CycleToWorkDay is for you. It’s a day to get in the saddle and experience the brilliant benefits everyday #Cycling offers – mental, physical and financial – first-hand.

What are the benefits of cycling to work?

  • Time saving: Cycling to work is 50% quicker than driving in rush hour.
  • Environmental: 133,442 tonnes of CO2 is saved each year by people cycling to work.
  • Health: Cycling to work for just three days a week burns 1,000 calories. The average person loses 14lbs in their first year of cycling to work.
  • Financial: The cost of cycling to work for a full year sits at around £396. Meanwhile, taking the bus costs £625 per year, skyrocketing to £3,727 to drive – that’s a hike of more than 800%.
  • Mental wellbeing: Research has shown that cycling to work reduces stress and anxiety, combats depression, increases self-esteem and even boosts productivity.
