Cycle to Work day is the UK’s biggest cycle commuting event. It’s pretty well summed up by its title; one day where instead of your usual commute you do it by bike instead (or if you already do it by bike, then you carry on as normal). 

It’s not a day just for super keen roadies, or hardcore mountain bikers or anything like that. It’s a day for normal people to get on a bike and ride, even if you haven’t ridden in years and feel like you wouldn’t know where to start. 

So whatever journey you’re planning for August 6, 2020, plan to do it by bike. It doesn’t just have to be riding to work, either, it could be a trip to the shops, a ride after work for the fun of it or  even just your daily few minutes of exercise, basically anything that you’d usually do without a bike, just add a bike into those plans. 

You can find out more about Cycle to Work day on the official website, but joining in is simple. All you have to do is log your journey on the Love to Ride app - which you can download from the Apple Apple Store or Google Play Store for free - and create and account. You can also sync your Strava with the Love to Ride account, or just use the app itself to record your ride. 

As the headline sponsor of this year’s Cycle to Work day, Freewheel is offering a whole host of great prizes for anyone who takes part. To enter the draw for a chance to win, just log your ride using the Love to Ride app on the day. You can find more information on the Cycle to Work Day Facebook page
