Thursday 4 August is Cycle to Work Day

Posted by Devon Partnership Trust in News, Recovery and wellbeing on 3rd August, 2022

Cycle to Work DayCycle to Work Day is the UK’s biggest cycling commuting event and this year it celebrates its 10-year anniversary.

Cycle to Work Day is for everyone, for those who ride to work every day, those who maybe cycle every few days and for those who haven’t ridden a bike in years. The idea is to give cycling a go, to get out in the fresh air and join a community of cyclists who can encourage you and share all the varied benefits of a commute to work by bike.

To celebrate this 10 year milestone, there are lots of prizes to be won. All you need to do is join Love to Ride online and log your rides with the community.

The prizes on offer:
Every year a brilliant range of prizes is up for grabs! It is hoped the chance to win these wonderful prizes will entice people to get on their bikes and cycle to work, avoiding lengthy traffic queues and stressful commutes. This year the prizes include (but are not limited to):

  • From £1,800 to spend at Freewheel
  • A bike with a value of up to £1,500
  • Bike hire membership
  • Books
  • Bike locks
