Get in the saddle for Cycle to Work Day and encourage your colleagues, friends and family to give cycling a go too.
Cycle to Work Day is a national event held this year on Wednesday 14 September 2016. It aims to encourage everyone to take to two wheels and cycle to work for at least one day. By pledging to cycle on the Cycle to Work Day website you are entered into a competition to win prizes including bikes and cycling accessories. Bike shops across the UK are offering Cycle to Work Day participants a free bike health check from the 1st to the 14th of September.
Transport for Greater Manchester’s #JustRide cycling campaign is in full flow with events organised across Greater Manchester.

The TfGM cycling team will be in Piccadilly Gardens between 11am and 3pm on Cycle to Work Day handing out goodies and offering advice on all things cycling. Dr Bike will be on hand between 12-2pm to repair any bikes that need some TLC.
Throughout the Summer, bike recycling centres across the country will be taking part in the Big Bike Revival Summer of Cycling, organised by Cycling UK. There are loads of local events and activities taking place, including maintenance training, bike rides and equipment trials.
