Be a Carbon Crusher this October! 

Did you know transport accounts for 28% of the UK's carbon emissions and private cars are by far the biggest contributor? With 70% of British journeys under 5 miles made by car, the tiny changes we can make to swap motorised transport journeys for pedal power could have a huge impact in helping to address the climate crisis.

This October, and beyond, we're encouraging more people to use a bicycle to get from A to B. To motivate you we've got TWO £300 prizes to spend on gear and accessories to keep you cycling, or to donate to a clean air charity of your choice.

WE RUN A YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMME OF EVENTS:

To help more people experience the benefits of riding.


What's Love to Ride all about?

Riding a bike has significant benefits for you as an individual, our communities and our planet.  Riding a bike can help:

  • prevent the decline of your immune system in the short and long-term.
  • cut the risk of cancer and heart disease by 45%
  • boost your mental health, helping to make you feel happier and more connected to your surroundings and less prone to depression than other forms of transport
  • reduce stress and anxiety - any form of physical exercise is good for reducing stress. Cycling can help take your mind off problems, or give you a chance to think about things calmly. 
  • reduce congestion and pollution, which contributes to 40,000 premature deaths annually in the UK
  • reduce cost on public health - the NHS could save billions through reduced obesity, diabetes and heart disease
