August 3rd: Cycle To Work Day
So what is Cycle to Work Day?
Cycle to Work Day is one of the most significant community events in the UK, this year marks its eleventh anniversary that the Cycle scheme is running the event. It is all about encouraging the UK’s workforce to use an alternative mode of transport to work, which is cycling rather than the traditional car. This event is for everyone, what matters is encouraging each other to give it a go, while joining the community of cyclists and experiencing all that’s good about cycling to work.
What are the benefits of cycling to work?
* Cycling to work is 50% quicker than driving in rush hour.
* 133,442 tonnes of CO2 are saved each year by people that are cycling to work.
* Just cycling to work three days a week burns 1,000 calories, furthermore the average person loses 14 lbs in the first year of cycling to work which creates a benefit in health both physically and mentally.
* There is an obvious financial saving, the cost of cycling a year costs around £396 a year on average. In comparison taking a bus is around £625 a year, even more shockingly it costs on average £3,727 TO DRIVE! That’s more than 800%
How do you take part in the cycle to work day?
If this is tempting to give it a go and would like to participate but you are nervous about participating, don’t be. This event is made for everyone. You could be a complete beginner, a casual biker or someone who already cycles to work. The cycle scheme is using the free Love to Ride mobile app, to log rides throughout the event but also encourages the use of cycling as an alternative method of transport.
