Cycle to Work Day returns on 15th August, with vouchers offered from top bike brands to celebrate

Organised by Cyclescheme, Cycle To Work Day aims to get more people free from their cars and public transport and on to their bikes... a healthier, happier and often quicker way to get to work!

Cycle to Work Day returns on Wednesday 15th August, with the national health and well being event aiming to increase awareness of cycle commuting and appeal to both experienced and beginner cyclists alike.

Over 2 million collective miles have been ridden by commuters on Cycle to Work Day since it began in 2012, and both employers and employees are being encouraged to spread the word to their colleagues who might be apprehensive about cycle commuting... accessibility, affordability and fun are the big reasons of course, and with any luck those who get on their bikes for the first time on the day can stick to their healthier habit. 

Cyclescheme, who are behind Cycle to Work Day, have also partnered with Cannondale and Specialized for this year's event, offering a £30 reward voucher to anyone who buys a bike priced at £500 or more until the 31st August; you can spend the voucher in the store where you purchased your new steed.

Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
