UK Cycle to Work Day

Let's beat the Dutch

September 4th is UK cycle to work day. Championed by multi gold medal winning Paralympic cyclist, Dame Sarah Storey, the day aims to encourage everyone to take to two wheels and cycle to work for just one day. According to data 760,000 people in the UK cycle to work regularly - this number keeps growing steadily. By 2021, we hope to see 1 million people regularly commuting to work by bike. In our home city of London, bikes now account for 24 per cent of all road traffic during the morning peak and 16 per cent across the whole day. Almost 9,300 riders - 11 a minute - cross London Bridge each day. Along Amsterdam’s busiest cycle route through the Rijksmuseum there is a daily frequency of 13,000. The Huez* team will be on their bikes today, so get on yours and see if we can beat the Dutch before the day is out.
