National Cycle to Work Day returns next month and we’re offering FREE hire bikes to two motorists who are willing to ditch the car and try commuting to work by bike.
September 4th is all about leaving the car at home for the day and getting to work on two wheels instead of four.
But we say – why stop at a day? Why not try it for a whole week?
The health benefits are proven and people who cycle to work arrive feeling fresh, invigorated and ready to go.
To prove the point, we want two dedicated car commuters to try cycling to work for a week and keep a diary of their experiences, which we’ll run on this blog and in local media.
We’ll provide the bikes from our fleet of hire steeds.
Cycle to Work Day is a national event. Last year saw over 20,000 budding cycle commuters hit the streets across the UK, and ride over a quarter of a million miles.
Census data suggests over three quarters of a million people in Britain cycle to work regularly.
And research by national charity Sustrans Cymru – which promotes walking, cycling and public transport as alternatives to the car – shows cyclists who use the National Cycle Network take half as many sick days as the average UK worker.
If you’re interested in trying out cycling to work for a week, and you’re willing to keep a diary, get in touch with us on 01497 822 419.
*To celebrate Cycle to Work day, we’ll also be offering free bike health checks from August 25th to Sept 4th.
