Cycle to Work Day is a national event held on 3rd September 2015. It aims to encourage everyone to take to two wheels and cycle to work for at least one day.
According to the census data, 760,000 people in the UK cycle to work regularly – this number keeps growing steadily, but with Cycle to Work Day’s help we are aiming to make those numbers skyrocket this year and beyond! By 2021, we hope to see one million people regularly commuting to work by bike.
