Cycle September is running from 1-30 September and we'd like to invite you all to take part.
It's a fun, free competition where we're competing to see which workplace can get the most staff to try cycling. There are loads of prizes that you can win by riding and encouraging friends and coworkers.
If you haven't cycled for years, don't worry! You only have to ride a bike for just 10 minutes or more for your participation to count towards our team's score. And you can ride anywhere, anytime during the Challenge.
If you already ride - you already know how enjoyable riding is and how good it makes you feel. So here's your chance to get your workmates to experience how easy and enjoyable riding can be.
Get involved, it takes just 2 minutes to register. Go to lovetoride.net, click 'Register' at the top of the page and join our team!
Give it a go and help us pedal our way to victory!

The League of American Bicyclists and Love to Ride is gearing up for the National Bike Challenge this year and you're invited!
The National Bike Challenge is a fun competition where everyone can take part. You can ride on your own or use a group profile or organization profile on lovetoride.net to support your friends and coworkers to ride and stay healthy, even when we're apart. In these unusual times, riding a bike can boost our immunity and help us get around safely.
With a group profile, we can compete (in a friendly way) against other groups to see who can ride the most miles/days on the monthly leaderboards.
Each group can have as many members as we like and will compete against other groups of a similar size. There will also be an option to see our totals for the whole May – September challenge period.
Get involved - it takes just 1 minute to register
Go to nationalbikechallenge.org and click ‘Register’ at the top of the page (or login if you took part in 2018/19). You can easily connect with Strava, MapMyRide or Endomondo and log your rides automatically.
There is also a global workplace challenge happening in September where businesses can compete to see which can encourage most staff to ride!
