Cycle to Work Day is a national event to be held on September 14th, 2016. It aims to encourage everyone to take to two wheels and cycle to work for at least one day. Last year tens of thousands got involved.
According to the census data, 741,000 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.
Hundreds of employers have also supported the day, from start-ups like Pact Coffee and Rumble Labs, to large national companies such as Amey and Rolls Royce and organisations such as NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, and The University of Cambridge.
Cycle to Work Day also enjoys unilateral support from cycling advocacy groups such as British Cycling, Sustrans, the London Cycling Campaign, Cyclescheme, Cyclescheme Ireland the Bicycle Association, CTC – the national cycling charity, and Cycle Nation.
This far-reaching support ensures that Cycle to Work Day’s message is spread far and wide, but to truly fulfil our aims and see one million people regularly cycle.
