At Love to Ride we fully support the UK Government’s position on cycling, which it says is central to getting the economy moving again and is a great way to get your daily exercise. 

We encourage you to ride your bike as your main mode for essential travel and as a fun, enjoyable form of daily exercise whilst observing the rules of lockdown.

Riding a bike has so many benefits for our physical and mental health. It helps combat stress and anxiety, releases happy chemicals and strengthens our immune systems.  It's a great way to make use of your daily exercise opportunity, to get out in the fresh air and feeling connected with the world around you. If you choose to bike for essential journeys, you'll be helping to ease congestion and freeing up space on public transport for key workers, you hero!

Update for indoor rides

We appreciate that some people can’t go outside and ride a bike at the moment as they are in a high risk category as it relates to Covid-19. Therefore, we made an exception for indoor rides on a stationary bike or trainer and allowed them be logged on Love to Ride in March 2020 and until further notice. This means indoor rides will add to your rider stats and be included in our prize draws

Please note that all indoor rides have to be logged manually on your profile even if you have an external app connected.

We encourage everyone who is able to go out and enjoy a bike ride to do so at this time. Cycling brings us so many benefits, including the mental and physical health benefits and happiness of being out in the fresh air and feeling connected with the world around us.

You can log indoor rides on your profile like this:
