This remarkable event, organised by Cycling UK, promises to be a week filled with fun, camaraderie, and the spirit of active travel.
Bike Week 100 is all about workplace cycling, and it’s the perfect opportunity to rally your colleagues and support a healthier, more sustainable commute. Whether you choose to organise an event ride, encourage staff to choose bikes over cars, or participate in exciting challenges, there are countless ways to get involved.
This year, the UK’s largest cycling awareness week is celebrating the power of active travel for businesses and individuals alike. Cycling UK is even offering free event insurance and promotional materials for workplace cycling events, making it easier than ever to organise something special.
As part of the Bike Week 100 celebrations, a series of challenges will be set, showcasing the far-reaching benefits of cycling. By taking part, you’ll be highlighting how cycling positively impacts our health, finances, communities, and the natural world. This is an opportunity to make a tangible difference and raise awareness of the advantages of active travel.
